Judy,
The only things that you have to remember are:

1.) Xtree Gold 3.0 does not recognise long names

2.) Windows 95 will run it in an MSDOS Window

3.) Any deleted files from the system, while using it will not be put into the Recycle Bin, thus no undelete from the Bin.
This would be a rather devilish way of removing sensitive files from somebody's computer, or even removing programs that you don't want recovered.
