Been away for a while. Sorry for not responding!
What I mean by a dos prompt has been mentioned before - a pure floppy booted promt.
I often get customers who screw up windows big time and haven't backed up any data so I need to copy certain files to disk before a format, but when you get
filenames such as address~1.doc upto address~9.doc etc ,it makes it hard to find out which is which (if I can get into windows I don't realy need Ztree)
Thanks for the replies, Mike
