Dunno why it popped into my head, but it was such a powerful app at the time.

I sorta miss it!

Thanks for jogging the memory. Found it filed in a dark musty corner of my mind!

Absolutely the best and fastest file management utility. I could do everything with a couple of keystrokes. Much faster than clicking with a mouse these days.

What a blast from the past! :D

 

Brings back a few memories of copying software and games to boxes of blank floppy disks. A 40MB HDD was a decent size back then... running a 80386 processor @ 16MHz.

 

This probably rings a bell;

Why improperly installed?

 

Edit: ah, i see.......probably not activated/registered in that shot.

I really miss it. Directory compares, file or text searches - there was no better tool.

There were a few attempts to create a version supporting long file names, but somehow none of them was half as good.

Price of progress...

Ahh Leisure Suit Larry. How many hours I wasted with that ....

Remember the boss key, or in my case, "mum" key!

Yep, a PC wasn't a PC without a copy of LSL somewhere on there...

 

Here's a couple more Sierra goodies;

Don't recall that particular program but I used to manage my whole business on a Mac Classic 11 including a 20,000 name database of customers (4 k Ram 40 k storage)

Xtree Gold was the best, we often talk about it here in the office, wishing there was something as good for current systems.

 

Cheers,

Jason.

Another user here.

My first PC was a 386sx16 with 4x 256k simms but had to install another 4 to do anything on win 3.1.

single speed cd rom and 16

bit sound card, 120 Mb HDD (cost a lot).

all that to watch 'defrag' run.

I used to remember riding my pushy across the suburbs with a big box of blank 3.5" disks under my arm.

A local guy used to charge $2 a game to copy them while you waited. I spent hours staring at X-Copy!

Of course at the time there was no "You wouldn't steal a handbag, would you?" type marketing and I didn't even know the meaning of the word 'piracy'.

Yep had x-copy and the c-64 cassette, there was 1 kid at school who you gave a blank cassette or floppy discs to with a couple of bucks in return for a stack of games.

It was a bit later on but I had a Panasonic 3DO, this was suppose to revolutionise the entertainment market as 3DO was a standard and anyone could make them, I think Goldstar made them as well. Of course Sony bought out the Ps1 and destroyed it.

yep I remember @ and remember well ! as my first industry job I did CAD work for 6 months at end of 6 months boss asked me to transfer across to our main drive all the files. instead of copy I hit the wrong command sequence and did delete instead :ohmy: and could see them all gone in a flash ! 

 

fortunately there was norton ! which got them back just as quickly ! my goodness !
