XTreeGold and Y2K (Year 2000 compliance)

I've used XTree utility software since the mid-or-late 1980's. I've NEVER found any software utility program to be as useful as XTree. I'm currently using XTreeGold 3.0 for DOS (on a Win95 platform). I've had no problems with the program: I love the speed and ease of use!

Our company is evaluating all business and personal software programs to verify that they are/will be year 2000 compliant (Y2K). I've been trying to find out if XTreeGold is Y2K compliant. Is there any way to find out if XTG will work after the year 2000 (without waiting until then): will it be affected (or affect something else) by the date changeover?

I contacted Jim Pickering (one of XTree's original engineers) and he referred me to Symantec Corporation and ZTree. After contacting Symantic's "Year 2000 Compliance department," I was told that all versions of XTree and XTreeGold are discontinued and won't be tested for compliancy. (I wasn't surprised.)

Our company hasn't updated our PCs with a "new BIOS," so I can't do any testing myself. I was just wondering if anyone else has thought of this or has done any testing on XTreeGold. (I have a feeling that it might not work.)

P.S.- I'm looking into purchasing and using ZTreeWin ( This program IS Year 2000 Compliant and is a lot like XTree!
