LegEasy4DOS: How to map drives in session for input/output and use them to take a backup.

In this video we show you how you set up a session and map the default input/output drives.

LegEasy4DOS run in its own little "world" so you don't automatically have access to your entire file system. You need to map drives like you used to do in your network.

LegEasy4DOS emulates DOS 5.x so you can only use 8 character long directory names etc.

Any drive you map will allow subdirectories etc. but any file name that is more than 8.3 ex. RDRRXAAAA.DBM will be ignored as well as any directory name longer than 8 characters. (you won't see them from inside your LegEasy Session).

You can map any number of drives (we will show you this in a later demonstration) but for now we concentrate on the E: (export) and I: (Import).

You can of course use these mapped drives for anything you like, but we find it is easier to remember if you give them a "purpose"..

We see here E: (internally in DOS only refered to as E: or E:\ mapped to g:\de553\backup

These drives can be mapped to any lengthy path but will internally in LegEasy 4DOS always be referred to by their drive desingation+thet path.

So if we have a G:\de553\backup\121212\tmp catalogue it will internally in LegEasy4DOS be referenced by

e:\121212\tmp
