Two years ago I backed up my computer at work with PC-Tools (DOs).
I have about fifty diskettes with backup files.
Now I would like to restore some of these files on my computer, but I do not have PC Tools any more.
How can I find an old version of PcTools, or is there another way to restore these files in Winn 95.

Software searches system to determine trade-up eligibility.

The second (Version 2.0) is a competitive upgrade which  works if you have
any of the following installed on your PC:

both.  Purchaser pays shipping or picks up.

That was just the 1st I came accross. If you're familiar with the newgroups there are many "forsale" groups.
