The DiskTools Collection has a long and varied history as commercial software. It began as BatteryPak , published by Batteries Included in 1985. When Electronic Arts bought Batteries Included, a major revision was completed, and it was published as DiskTools Plus from Electronic Arts. The product was then sold to Fifth Generation Systems, Inc. and revised again (to version 3.0) and published as part of both the File Director and MacPak products. When Symantec bought Fifth Generation Systems, the rights reverted back to Rainmaker Research Inc.

The DiskTools Collection is a suite of 5 small applications (known as desk accessories). This is one of (if not the) last version. It's very polished and made freeware after all these years. Last version is the 3.3.4 FREE version, dated from 2006, but version 3.x has been around since early 1990's. This software runs only on Classic Mac OS - System 7 through Mac OS 9.x, including Classic on Mac OS X. The desk accessories consist of:

DiskTools:

A file management desk accessory. Use DiskTools 3.3.4 to list, rename, delete, copy and find files. As well, DiskTools includes a unique "Marked Files" function that allows you to operate on files contained anywhere on any of your hard disks at once.

Phone Pad:

Phone Pad is a 1000 page Notepad replacement. Phone Pad contains search, indexing and dialing functions not found in the standard Apple Notepad desk accessory.

Calendar:

Calendar is a simple perpetual Calendar desk accessory with note taking, searching, printing, archiving and dialing capabilities.

RPN and Sci Calculators:

Two calculator desk accessories modeled after the Hewlett-Packard RPN style of calculating. Both contain functions that the standard Apple Calculator does not, the Scientific Calculator contains many scientific functions as well.
