if you are able to make a .DSK image file out of it, please do.

 

I'd love to try it for you.

Why is that? Was it a policy from Amstrad or from Sears? And was it to avoid getting more software?

 

Anyway, I now have a fully working PCW, thanks to UKretrogamer :

I'm impressed by how this file manager is easy and fast to use once you start to get used to it. I don't think anything alike existed on other computers of the time as a standard software. (but surely, third-party software doing as good or better existed. I remember of PC-Tools for MS-dos, being very powerful and user friendly).

 

The use of the RAM as a virtual disk is truely amazing and handy. It might not be as useful when having two disc drives, but it means you can still copy files from two different floppies and put them back on another one. It feel powerful! :-D

Sorry for digging up an old topic again, but I have a question.

Is there any place I can find disk images for this stuff?
I have an old PCW10 on my repair desk right now which I got to power up but since I don't have any bootdiscs (3.5" DD) I can't see if it does what it should do.

 

I have searched online for some while now but I can't find any images besides from the 3" 9512 images.
