I am fairly sure it recognises Stuffit 5 archives if you have the "stuffit powerplug?" extension installed (from the full version of Stuffit 4/5/6?

I'm pretty sure I stuffed a lot of stuff from my recent backup CDs with dropstuff 5.5, and they are all catalogued nicely ?!?!

Well thankyou ... lots of Brownie points .... go to the top of the class to WHOEVER put it here.

btw the pedant in me says (as does my info box) that it was actually released 1n 1995.

@Pincrete: You'd better thank xy instead as he did the uploading, not me. I only pointed out the current source of the originals Wink

But yes, I think that its good they're archived here too.

Thanks MikeTomTom, you have done what I did not know how to do, i.e. post Disk Wizard here.

Just to let people know, Disk Wizard was the basis for Iomega's Findit (they apparently bought the code from the author) ... It is virtually identical to Findit in interface, options and functionality.

I have used Disk Wizard on real Macs from an SE30 in 1995 to G3s and MDD's recently. I've used it from system 7.0 to 9.2 and I've recently used it inside Sheepshaver on both a Macbook Pro and inside Windows XP. In every case it has been totally stable and functional.

The only limitation is that it WON"T AUTO-SCAN non-SCSI/floppy drives (one of the beauties of it in 1995 was that it kept one's floppy disk library up-to-date without one ever thinking about it).

It WILL MANUAL-SCAN any mounted drive, and since most of us are now probably trying to keep track of CD-ROMs and disk images (rather than floppies and zip drives) .... the loss of the auto-scan function is not a tragedy.

All in all I highly recommend this as a straightforward no frills but reliable disk cataloguer.

The official DL page for the original Disk Wizard 2.0, down-loadable in the English, French, Italian and Swedish languages is still available from the author François Pottier's page here.
