Rating:

8 Penguins out of a possible 10

Summary: -- AccessPC is a single purpose utility that sits in the background and allows you to mount MS-DOS disks on the Macintosh desktop (assuming of course, that you have a drive that can read and write MS-DOS disks). AccessPC is about as transparent as possible and is much faster than DOS Mounter 1.0. You even get the extra bonus of being able to mount SoftPC hard disk documents as volumes, which makes for much easier transfer of files in and out.
