Novell DOS

<operating system, product> Novell's fully compatible alternative to MS-DOS. It is intended as an operating system for workstations on Novell networks. It features enhanced memory management that moves the operating system, network drivers, and memory-resident programs (TSRs) out of conventional memory on all systems with an Intel 80286 or later processor and extended memory or expanded memory. It supports preemptive multitasking and peer-to-peer networking using the same DOS Requester and VLMs for a "common client" with native Novell NetWare.

A data compression utility effectively doubles storage capacity of the hard disk. It supports disk defragmentation, a read/write disk cache for better performance of both DOS and Microsoft Windows application programs. An undelete utility recovers erased files, even on network drives. It has a complete on-line reference guide, command help, and menu-driven install and setup utilities for easy configuration changes.

Novell DOS has internal and external commands like MS-DOS. The following commands have been significantly enhanced in Novell DOS: CHKDSK, DISKCOPY, HELP, MEM, REPLACE, UNDELETE, and XCOPY. Novell DOS also includes many new commands such as XDIR, CURSOR, XDEL, TOUCH, SCRIPT, and RENDIR.

Version: 7.
