 PRESS RELEASE

November 30, 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. 

The sample files are NNTOOLS.ARC and NNTOOLS.TXT.  They 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 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

[ ] IBM 1.2Mb 5 1/4
