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.


2011 interview with Richard Wilson at

Richard Wilson WinAPE (CPC emulator) site:

Not emulated - original hardware and software.

Please note that the aspect ratio for this YouTube video is 16:9 but the CPC monitor
has an aspect ratio of 4:3 so you may wish to adjust your viewing device accordingly.
