Nicks Swift Copy 1984

Nick’s Swift Copy was a 1984 release. It was Much more than just the Best Copy Program and Copied “almost all’ protected disk (what does that mean?). Could handle disk errors, had a quick format. A disk analyzer to detect errors, 1/2 tracks, extra sectors, non standard SYNC, etc).
Nick’s Swift Copy is referenced very frequently in the CLONE NEWSLETTERS also found on the blog here. Click Clone Newsletters on the right side bar.

It took YEARS, but the program was found: Nicks Swift Copy 2.0

21 Second Backup

The 21 Second Backup used special hardware

Claims: The worlds fastest copier! It takes only 21 seconds to duplicate an original diskette, one keystroke provides the user with a complete backup. It works every time!

Also 21 Second backup will not work with the Burst Nibbler Cable. The program looks for this cable and will not work if the Burst Nibbler cable is found. This is because the cables are different.

Here is the software and build notes of this kit: 21 second backup Plus
