Post subject:  DOS software archive

There are a lot lists with software archives, but many ones are obsolete/outdated.

Do you know http://www.heise.de/software/ ?
- unfortunately it's German (but most software is English anyway)
- many software marked as DOS has in fact no DOS version (seams the reported confused it with DOS-box on NT)
- but also many useful diagnose/benchmark software can be found there, links and versions are quite up to date

For example I found
- h2bech (harddisk benchmark tool) and
- fttest (monitor test tool)

And there are even more tools which could be potentially added. Are you interested?

Keep the suggestions coming in. But if I can help it, I won't be adding new apps to UBCD V5.0 until we are out of beta. For later releases, maybe.

It doesn't matter when them get added, just to start the process that them get added at any time is fine.

Ok, I post all applications I would find useful on ubcd. Obviously I think that a mp3 player or Integrated Development Environment or stuff like this will be not useful for a boot CD.

Only tools like you already use, like for hardware analysis, benchmark, backup, testing, etc.

Antivir Bootsecotor Scan for DOS, still maintained, different from the one added to ubcd beta
