CopyIIMac?

Anyone know where I can find this? Also any ideas on whether it'll work on a Mac IIsi or is it just for classic Macs?

I have two versions of it, but I've only ever run them on a Mac Plus. I would not be surprised to find they are not System 7 compatible, but a IIsi and System 6 will probably be fine.

Good news and bad news.

Copy II Mac will run on a IIsi under System 6.0.8

I have orginial copies.

Bad news is I'm in Iraq and won't have access tio them until July! [:(!] !]'>

Thanks guys.

I've gotten my hands on this already. This is in the hopes of resurrecting a set of bad UniPlus Unix disks for the Apple Lisa. Its owner is selling his Lisa on ebay, and wants to include these disks as a bonus, but since they're bad, I'm trying to get as much data off of them as possible. DiskCopy 4.2 stop at the first unreadable block.

While I'm sure that I won't be able to get all the data off of them, I'm hoping that at least CopyIIMac will read past the first error and copy as much as it can.

The ebay auction is here:

And here's some pix:

Turns out UniPlus is a pretty cool little Unix... at least it has a lot more stuff in it than the Xenix distros for the Lisa. (Fortran, Pascal, ability to use an ethernet card, ability to use a datatower hard drive, etc.)

I'll go install 6.0.8 on my IIsi and keep my fingers crossed.

Would be a shame to let this be lost.

Thanks again, Kallikak.

Tony, thank you for the info. :) Get home safe once the mess over there is over.

Looks like my previous post was eaten by a grue...

Turns out UniPlus is a pretty cool little Unix, full System V... at least it has a lot more stuff in it than the Xenix distros for the Lisa. (Fortran, Pascal, ability to use an ethernet card, ability to use a datatower hard drive, etc.)

I'll go install 6.0.8 on my IIsi and keep my fingers crossed.

Have you tried Fedit as an alternative to CopyIIMac? It definitely runs on System 7 on 68K hardware.
