I've been using DateStamper since October; I used it with WordStar 4.0,
Eco-C80, and the Make utility supplied in the tool kit to develop a
~3500 compiler for a course in compilers and operating systems that
I took. DateStamper made keeping the numerous source files up-to-date
easy. DatSweep made incremental backups possible (I use a 1M Advent
RAM Disk; it sure beats copying ALL the sources just to make sure that
everything is safely on a floppy).

I've been using DosDisk since December (it came with my upgrade for the
MultiCopy program for CP/M Kaypros). I take disks back-and-forth from
work regularly, and I have only had a problem with one disk: a demo-disk
for CompuView's VEDIT PLUS. None of our machines at work could read it,
either. I was able to access it with Media Master on my Kaypro.
I've also been using the public domain demo for BackGrounder II. Did you
know that there is a way to log to another disk while running BGII? It
involves DatSweep (doesn't work with NewSweep, so it must be something
peculiar to DatSweep). Maybe if I get a full-time job, I'll spring for
the complete version.
