How to back-up MS-DOS 6.21 Installation Diskettes? (Users)

posted by CluelessInSeattl(R), Seattle, USA, 16.08.2012, 03:45

I just dug out my set of three installation diskettes for MS-DOS 6.21.

I thought I had back-ups of them, but I can't find them.

Since my latest project is trying to get my old MS-DOS system up and running again, I figure that the first thing I need to do is make a couple of back-up sets of these precious disks.

Can I just use the MS-DOS diskcopy command?

Do I need to use the SYS command too?

I'd like to copy these diskettes to CDs too. Is there a way to copy images of the diskettes to the a CD, so that I could then at some future date use the CD to make exact replicas of my original diskettes?
