Thanks for the repky

Yes I was interested in program files, I have an 8050 drive, a SuperPet and a Fat 40 converted to 80 columns, thinking of converting it back to show my son some games. I know there is a conversion program, I never did like the screen results.  It seems most of the fat40 material is in d64 format.  Do you mean use a emulated program on say a C64 through VICE and mount two drives?  I have not played with VICE that much.

While I am not sure about REL files and obviously some decorative (like locked DELs) entries won't get through with regular copy but everything else will.
