We've Improved Upon the Best ...
CrossDOS (TM) Version 6 Professional
Plymouth, MI, USA -- CONSULTRON has announced that it will be shipping
CrossDOS (TM) Version 6 Professional on April 3, 1995. CrossDOS has been
enhanced to better support MS-DOS formatted floppies and hard disks.
Here's a quick list of our ``New and Improved'' features:
Faster Floppy Access
We've completely rewrote the floppy device driver (mfm.device) to
speed up reads and writes approximately two times.
Faster Hard Disk Writes
We've optimized CrossDOS disk caching and disk access routines to
speed up writes to MS-DOS hard disks approximately ten times.
Partition MS-DOS Hard Drives
Using our QuickPrep utility, you can create a `true' MS-DOS hard
disk partition entirely on your Amiga. You are no longer required
to preformat the disk on an MS-DOS computer first.
Read and Write MS-DOS Disk Images in Files
CrossDOS now supports Bridgeboard MakeAB and JLink files, PC-Task
hardfiles and AtOnce/GoldenGate diskfiles.
We've improved CrossDOS to be compatible with most Amiga networks.
Improved Hard Disk Configuration and Diagnostic Utilities
We've made substantial enhancements to many CrossDOS utilities
including the hard disk configuration and diagnostic programs.
Full-time Technical Support
We still provide full-time technical support for our products.
Tech support is available Monday through Friday between the hours
of 10 AM and 6 PM EST.
Runs on any Amiga
CrossDOS will run on any Amiga with 512K or more of RAM using
AmigaDOS 2.0 or higher.
