Expresso Coppee

Expresso Coppee is a routine for fast copying of microdrive cartridges.

This program claimed to be able to copy a microdrive cartridge in under a minute (compared to the normal time of around 5 minutes). It did this by by-passing the normal QDOS file handling routines and directly accessing the microdrive units. It will also attempt to overcome errors by repeatedly trying to read a file.

The program opens its own window during runtime, covering #0 with a black-coloured background and green font. It does not use #0 for input/output and will not operate on copy protected files.
