This app works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

Set of six Microsoft Select CDs:
ISO images processed with Stuffit Deluxe 5.0

Please note, that Office_4 for Macintosh was unfortunately not fully cross compatible with Office_4 PC.
E.g. PowerPoint files from Mac would not open on PC's and vice versa.
Cross platform compatibility was achieved later with Office_98 Mac / Office_2000 PC.

Architecture: 68k PPC

I would like to point you to Knez´s Hotline/Wired server, available via
The disks are all there, among other interesting stuff, even unchopped.

As MF is dropping files occasionally, the six disk image files are also hosted here on the hotline server:

Living on former Danish territory, I glad to help out the neighbours in the north. Smile

After asking MF to restore my file in question, they changed it from "unaccessable" to "deleted".
I wonder what they did with their servers in Texas. The pop-up box tells me the original uploader
has probably deleted the file. (lol)
This kind of treatment is rediculous, but I guess you can´t complain much about something available for free.
Important files should really be stored somewhere else permanently.

The only one out of this entire bunch I would like (I already have Office 4.2) is "...US: - Microsoft FoxPro 2.6a".
I acquired a boxed set of floppies for this (including manuals), long after this app was out of circulation. One of the install floppies was fubar, rendering the entire set useless... sigh.

I see, there seems to be a problem on MF unfortunately.
Can you try to download from a mirror like sheepmyshaver123´s maybe?

EDIT: No you cant. Seems to be the same file on MF, only linked differently.
Has someone stored the file locally, so I dont have to re-upload the whole thing?

A great upload! However, I get an error message when trying to download segment 2 of disc 4.

Monumental upload -- I have given this post 5 stars, but would like to give it 6 (ala Spinal Tap)!

I tried again Apps 04 archive; Stuffit 7 does expand now. Thanks a lot. The archive is gold: It has all the foreign language dictionaries (hyphenation, etc.) for Word 5.0 and 5.1 (Proofing Tools for Word 5.0) - which is an excellent supplement to the Word 5.1a upload of MacGarden.

I think it depends on what is being compressed. So for SSW 7 and earlier we try to use Stuffit v4 or earlier, although I've used v5.5 and never had any complaints.
After SSW 7 I think we try to use Stuffit v5.5 compatible versions. So you can use Stuffit v7 but open Preferences and change the Stuffing Preference from "Better Compression" to"Faster Compression" to get a Stuffit v5.5 compatible file.

In reality, no-one will have a rant if it's a later version, one of us will download it, expand, re-compress it and re-upload it. There may be a few groans if it's something like Stuffit v16 (v18 by the time you read this)

Edit: Changed 'xxx 7' to 'SSW 7' - IIGS User

Sorry, I should have mentioned before, that the files are made with Stuffit Deluxe 5.0 mostly.
I wanted to have 3.6 at first, but some outputs had been crippled, thats why I changed to 5.
Usually 7 is capable of inflating files from 5.
BTW, do you have a favorite Stuffit version, that is commonly accepted?

I've tried StuffIt Windows 9, StuffIt Expander 4.0.1 or StuffIt Expander 5.5, works. Did you downgrade to 6.5?

Do these archives open up on Mac OS 9 now? I tried the US and the international archives a few days ago. Stuffit Expander 7 refused to open.

if you're having trouble, please try using GNU ddrescue in Linux or OS X. After compiling it, use it like this:

ddrescue -v -r N /dev/rdiskZ path/to/outputfile.img path/to/outputfile.log

In Linux, also add the -d option (ddrescue -v -d -r N ...)

N is the number of times to retry a bad sector and Z is the disk ID. You can find this out by running df when the disk is mounted. Make sure you use the main disk (/dev/diskZ), not the partition (/dev/diskZrY). This is a way to image disks with additional data, but I'm not sure if it works for CD-DA. There, using EAC or XLD is probably better.
Make sure you unmount the disk in Disk Utility (but do not eject) before using ddrescue.

ddrescue can be interrupted, and it will use the log to resume where it left off.

Good luck recovering flaky disks! (CDs, hard disks or others Smile

ddrescue produces raw images, which are exactly the same as '.iso' format. Be careful not to modify them by mistake!
