[Request] WordPerfect 5.0 3.5"-720k dated 7/11/88

edited January 2017 in Offers & Requests
Since this disk set is impossible to repair, I'm just posting this here. I have a WordPerfect 5 disk set but the Fonts/Graphics/PTR disk (disk 2 below) was partially erased and not reparable.

Wordperfect made numerous minor updates without bumping the version numbers. This copy has EXEs dates 7/11/88. This is different from the ones currently on Winworld.

The following is a listing of the disks. The second disk (fonts/graphcis/ptr) is partially erased and incomplete.

If anyone has Fonts/Graphics/PTR matching the below file dates, that would be great.

    Can you upload it by PM?

    I have also non verified disk of Word Perfect 5.0 disk (5.25" from backup copied disk)
    14 file(s)         62,961 bytes

    In this case, FAT & Root Area seem to be trouble.

    I'll try to recover it.
  • Trust me, it is not recoverable without at least the original matching files. I had to run it through a kryoflux to figure out what happened - the disk was reformatted on a single sided Macintosh!

    So the fat, directory, and every other track on the disk is gone and the only reason I was able to hack together that bit of a directory is that the last few sectors were on the second side.

    Looking at a later update Fonts/Graphics/PTR disk contains the following files:

    I believe these would be the same filenames minus the readme.grb, and with earlier file dates. But the files on this update disk were recompiled and completely different internally. None of the fragments left matched any of these files.
  • Anyway can you attach (upload) damaged image?

    I have copied WordPerfect 5.0 (1988).
    (I didn't offer the disk.)

    So I want to see the damaged disk.


    P.S. It is very hard to find WordPerfect 5.0 (1988) on eBay.
    A few of listings are incomplete.

    Another is 1989 version of WP 5.0 (Disk Label Date : 11/89)

    I can attach 1988 of WP 5.0 copied disk files by PM if you want.
  • Are you still looking for this? I don't have this on 720k floppies, but I have a copy of 5.0 on 360k floppies with the same time and date on those files.

  • Yes, I still am. If the files match exactly, I should be able to piece the disk back together.

    Of course, technically, I could just plop a different version on the disks and be done with it, but it would be nice to have this revision archived.

  • I've sent you a message. The files I have for the corrupt disk you've got seem to have the date you are looking for, but some of the other floppies in the set, notably the printer disks, are a little newer.

  • @jafir

    It is very nice to have a original disk of 360KB Word Perfect.
    I also have a lot of Word Perfect Disk, but it is very hard to find version 5.0 (early release)

    I’ve got 4.2 also. I just lucked into these disks. I bought a pile of old C64 stuff and there was a huge box of floppies. When I started going through them I was excited to find stuff I could use on my 5170 too :)

    Cool, by the way I wonder you've dumped 5.0 version of Word Perfect.
    If so can you PM me?

    My dumped WP 5.0 version is 10-07-88.

  • The bits fell in to place perfectly. Thanks. I've added this to the library.

  • I've downloaded it (3.5" of WP 5.0) and checked it.
    I think font-gra.img (Font/Graphics/PTR Program disk) is not perfect because memory dumped sector is not enough.

    So I think Font/Graphics/PTR/Program disk should be dumped by SCP and Kryoflux to fix the problem correctly if possible.

    I know the disk seems to be damaged on side 1.
