I bought a copy of Backup Magic three years ago directly from Carl.
He is a subscriber to this list. (Hint: Log in to the subscriber list
and search for someone with the name "Spock" in his e-mail address--
The CoCo subscriber list log in can be found here:
I had to send him a money order and get a copy of the floppy by mail,
so the distribution is still decidedly low tech.
Backup Magic successfully made bootable copies of only a few of my
protected game disks.
It failed on:
Kyum-Gai: To Be Ninja (Sundog Systems)
Buzzard Bait (Tom Mix)
Sailor Man (Tim Mix)
Time Bandit (Michtron)
It did succeed on:
Sinistaar (Sundog Systems)
Warrior King (Sundog Systems)
