Hi guys,

I’m sure that many of you have fond memories of the legendary disk copier on the Amiga, namely X-Copy! I remember using this tool a lot myself and so did most people I knew who had Amiga’s. 🙂

While browsing EAB (English Amiga Board), I stumbled upon a thread about a website dedicated to X-Copy. I checked it out and it’s very nice. The site contains all the X-Copy releases and master disks. Even a section for error codes is included. Thought you might find it interesting, so here’s the link:

There are many interesting sites out there covering all kinds of topics concerning the Amiga and they often deserve more attention than they usually get, so hopefully more people will have a look at this one. 🙂

Have a good one and thanks for visiting my blog!

  1. I spent many an evening staring at that all-too-familiar screen, the sound of the disk drive crunching away, preparing disks to take into school the next day.

    Funny thing is, I wouldn’t think of pirating a game now, but back then it seemed so acceptable and as kids we never thought about the effect it was having on the industry and the developers. No doubt rampant piracy played a part in the eventual downfall of the Amiga; I read somewhere that piracy rates were as high as 20:1 back then.

    • Hi mate and thanks for the comment. 🙂 Yes, things have changed when it comes to piracy. I’m glad that people buy games and support developers these days. The piracy on the Amiga and C64 was enormous and kids did not think about the people behind the games and software, but it was a different time for sure.
