I've got some old software which was supplied on floppies with some weird
The disks allow me to do a total of three installations, after which the
setup no longer works. Each time I install the SW the number of remaining
installations goes down; and if I uninstall the SW from the disks then the
count goes up again. This has been OK generally, but twice now something has
happened to the installation on my HDD and I've had to reinstall from
scratch. This means that I now have no installations left on my floppies.
What I'd like to be able to do is uninstall the SW (to get the count back up
to 1) and then make an exact copy of the disks for safety. I've tried using
DiskCopy and also DiskImage, but each time I try to install from the copy it
fails. The copy must be in some subtle way different from the original.
Is there a program that will allow me to make an EXACT copy of a floppy,
sector by sector, byte by byte, so that the copy is identical and
undistinguishable from the original?
