EDR-DOS and DOS related links

1.  About

If you know a cool program or DOS related link, please add it here ;-)

If you find a broken link, while same or similar content is available at a new address, please update the link, if link seems “dead” and no new address available, mark it as “dead” but don’t erase it - hoping for a temporary failure only, or someone else finds out the new address ;-)

There could be some links in multiple categories - this is intentional, if some developer offers several different products.

  • NTFSDOS 4.03 by Mark Russinovich - effective CAPTIVE driver for DOS. “Understands” LFN and codepages other than 437 (e.g. 866). But requires some files from WinXP. Free demo version is “read only”
  • NTFS4DOS 1.9 - nice freeware driver, full access do hdd, NATIVE, but no LFN support
  • NTFS Reader 1.0 - supports LFN and codepages other than 437, but it is not driver, but stand-alone file manager. And it is slow and buggy.
