It uses palette switching to create the effect of falling snowflakes. From: K8G (Jonathan Harston) Subject: BACKUP Occasionally when backing up disks using the inbuilt *BACKUP command, I've found a error in a single sector somewhere. This aborts the whole backup. Also, if the catalogue is corrupted or doesn't actually hold DFS data then *BACKUP can get confused. So, I wrote this program It copies every sector and if any sector cannot be loaded because of errors, it retries it a number of times, and then ignores just that one sector and continues. It is fairly simple to use. It prompts you for the source and destination drives and the parameters of the disk. Just pressing RETURN will use the defaults shown in brackets. It then proceeds with the backup displaying the progress so far.
