I wasn't paying attention to what I was doing tonight, I accidentally formatted my install disk in DF1, when I meant to format a junk disk in DF0. I was using Diskmaster 1.4 which seems to default to formatting only to df1 :( Shame on me for not having the write protect on :oops:

So, if anyone has a set of OS3.0 (even with a few bad disks but a good Install disk) and wants to sell them, I would be interested.

Thanks,
Brian

Re: WTB OS3.0

Not helping in make a wrong decision, but I think you can download only the install disk image from somewhere and put it back into the original disk.

Much better than people who download copies of the entire OS what they never pay for. :|

Workbench 3.0 was built-in with any A1200 or A4000 of that era. I don't know if people will part with the disk only.

Anyway, good luck in your quest!

Re: WTB OS3.0

I should have posted here first. Sorry. I'm sending one off to him a copy for free first thing in the morning. :)

I promise to do better in the future.

Re: WTB OS3.0

wasn't os 3.0 given away for free on the AFCD's and the CUCD's? i believe they were given permission to put os 3.0 on thier cover discs for free distribution, so no copyright infringements with 3.0, but 3.1 and beyond are all still copyrighted.
i think the earlier versions are still copyrighted as well it is just version 3.0 as it's on the cover cds :)

cheers, JuvUK

Re: WTB OS3.0

I love this place :D !

Thanks to everyone for the quick responses!!

Thank you SdG!!

Will be looking for it :D

I was afraid to ask for a copy or ADF image as it may have violated AmiBay rules and copyright laws.

Thanks again all!!

Re: WTB OS3.0

IIRC, Workbench 1.0/1.1 will have the copyright expired next year. Or Softwares in general have less "copyright lifetime"?

Re: WTB OS3.0

Jfei, If you own the Original Disks, you are also allowed to have a Backup for your own use! :)

@ rustednail

Make a couple of backup set's & put them somewhere safe & away from Magnetic Fields! :wink:

Re: WTB OS3.0

Postman dropped off a Antistatic media envelope with two pristine copies of Install3.0!! :)

All bits and bytes accounted for

My original install disk now has its bits back in order and is write protected!

A million thank yous to SkydivinGirl!!

This tread can be locked now if the mods wish it.

Once again,
Thanks to all!! 8)
