Hello,

I've got WordPerfect 5.0 (5"1/4, 360KB diskettes), but the diskette labeled "WORDPERFECT 2" is trashed.
Does someone would give me a complete image of this diskette, please ?

The files of the diskette MUST have the following timecode : 06/12/1989 (U.S.'s convention -> June 12th, 1989).

Programmers at WordPerfect Inc. used to enhance their products WITHOUT changing the version number or include a release number.
That's why there are different versions of "WordPerfect 5.0" with the SAME version number, but with patched files: only time codes and files size differ.
That's why the time code (06/12/1989) is very important.

VETUSWARE and WINWORLD offer different versions, but not mine :(

Thank you.

You don't need an image -- only the file(s). They can be copied from disk to disk and used and installed normally without any imaging necessary.

The version (I think it's 5.1) I have is dated 8/20/1990.

My disk is 04/29/89.

But can you dump all disks by Teledisk or diskimage?
If the disk is deleted (Not formatted or not written) maybe it is possitle to recover (undelete).
