Hi netlandians

Has anyone else out here had any experience or problems with the ATT PC-6300
computer when backing up files in subdirectories with ATT MS-DOS v. 2.11.

I have seen the /P option crash no fewer than 3 100+kbyte files that were
backed up across diskettes. Is this a bug in my version of MS-DOS? Has it been
fixed? A bug in the hardware? Or?

Please give me a call or reply before 12-22-85 via mail as my system will be
down from 9:00pm PST 22-DEC-85 until 6:00am PST 7-JAN-86.

In the meantime I am using Compaq MS-DOS v. 2.11 Backup and Restore utilities
since they appear to work properly and do not cause abortions to the files on

Thank you in advance, I really do appreciate any light that you can shed :-) !
