UPDATE
 
December 6, 1995
 
To all ATARI 8-bit users who use SpartaDOS as their main disk operating 
system. My name is Nelson Nieves. I want to announce my intentions to 
support the ATARI 8-bit computer and users running SpartaDOS.
 
The programs are modeled after MS-DOS and Norton Utilities on the IBM 
platform.
 
Among the following programs in development are:
 
vUnErase - view and/or unerase deleted files or directories; recover 
partial deleted files to other disks or hard-drive partitions.
 
XCopy -- will use the extra 64k on 130XE computers for faster read and 
write operations; SpartaDOS 3.2x users will be able to take advantage of 
archival copies when used in combination with FAtr.
 
DeFrag -- a two part utility, defragmentor with a separate directory 
optimizer.
 
I have created a sample file (in ARC format), it contains full working 
versions of several of the programs that will be released commercially in 
mid 1996, a list of programs under development, and a questionnaire for 
you to fill in and mail back.
 
Thanks to Bill Kendrick the sample files, NNTOOLS.ARC and NNTOOLS.TXT, 
are now available on the Internet at FTP site:
 
  atari.archive.umich.edu
 
  atari/8bit/New
 
It will be moved by the keeper of the 8bit archives (Jody Lenn) when he 
gets a chance.  A link to it should also be in "Newitems" at the same 
time that it is moved.  I'm guessing it'll be put in the "Spartados" 
directory.
 
NNTOOLS.ARC should also be available on GEnie thanks to Jonathan Mordosky 
(ACUTE BBS) and BBSes across the U.S.
 
For those of you who cannot ftp or get the file from GEnie send $10.00 
U.S. dollars for the sample file to:
 
Nelson Nieves, ATTN: ATARI 8-bit project, P.O. BOX 1702, Hatillo, PR 
00659-1702
 
Let me know in which disk format:
 
[ ] ATARI 8-bit SpartaDOS
[ ] IBM 360k 5 1/4
[ ] IBM 1.2Mb 5 1/4
[ ] IBM 720k 3 1/2
[ ] IBM 1.44Mb 3 1/2
 
Questions? Call 1 (809) 820-3135. From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. eastern standard 
time. Ask for Nelson.
