Practical Parados
« on: 14:07, 20 February 20 »
Using the Parados ROM to delete files on Drive A and then copy files from the 3.5" Drive B to the 3" Drive A for use in a later CPC music video.

In ease of use and speed of operation Parados was easily the best DOS and disc/file utility ever written for the Amstrad CPC.
It was coded by Australian programmer Richard Wilson and released in 1993.
