Oh, it will! XTreeGold runs perfectly in an DOS box under Win95; although the
default mode is full screen you can either hit Alt-Enter to toggle to the
dos box-mode, or you can configure the properties of the "XTGOLD.COM" file to
rather start in a box by default!

Not really! A Win95 undelete utility like the Norton Utilities 3.0 for Win95
can even un-delete any files removed not to the recycle bin!

But *DO NEVER* use XTreeGold´s Oops (or even Wash) commands on a disk with a
Win95 file-system (VFAT), this will very likely cause irrevocable damage!

Better use ZTreeWin´s Wash command after deleting files directly to protect
them from undelete!
