Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

According to this website, the copy on the FTP can only opened in a Mac, not sure if this solves your problem.

Well that makes sense because it IS meant for a Mac after all. You could probably stick it in something like vMac however. It sounds like its an application not an OS and if that's the case you definitely wont be able to open it under any OS other than a Mac.

Pencil and paper
For whatever it is worth, I'll second the motion to get a fresh dump. The copy out there has a 1990s-something created/modified date shown on the disk's "get info" data, has a sysinfo file that does not belong on the disk, and may have other added/removed things.

Of course, since Mac users USED that disk to run their systems, an untouched disk would be very uncommon.

What does a file creation/modification date have to do with the possibility of it being a bad dump? We discussed this already on the Discord. It does not define anything.

An untouched disk would most likely be impossible to find since the machine this was originally used on did not have a hard drive, which means the floppy would have been used to store data on etc. So I find it very unlikely we will find an untouched floppy unless we can find a member that has a vintage 128k Macintosh that was never used, or a floppy at least that never got used in any machine.

But we can always hope such floppy pops up one day!
