PcDos Program

Has anyone ever experienced any problems using the PcDos program in moving
large files? I’m trying to move a 389K file from my 720k /d1 and the program
works fine on about 1/2 the file and then aborts by saying “ERROR: Read
Failed”. I checked the disk on my pc and the .zip file tests fine and I’m
able to move it back and forth on the pc. The command I’m using is:
pcdos -get -raw /d1 filename.zip /h1/temp/filename.zip

I’ve used PcDos many times before and have not run into this problem before.
I don’t recall trying to move something this large though, and was wondering
if there is some limitation of the file size that can be moved. Any ideas
will be appreciated.

    Do you have the latest version ? Version 4? Earlier versions *DID* have
    this problem. I think most of them just quietly quit, though, I think.

    Don’t know if there is a limit for version 4, but this was one of the
    fixes in it.

    I have the latest version of PCDOS, but I believe my CC3Disk driver is one
    of the older ones (MDALENE mentioned that may the problem I believe). I
    will check the database here on Delphi for a newer CC3Disk, but if it is
    not here, could someone upload it? Thanks for all the help.
