Tandy Disk Drive and Emulators

TPDD emulators, in concert with a compatible disk clients like TS-DOS, TEENY, POWR-DOS, FLOPPY.CO, the Booster Pak, or the WP-2 built-in Diskette client are the most popular way to accurately and quickly transfer all file types including binary files to and from your Model T laptop. There are different options for the server side on modern operating systems and devices:

Servers

The TPDD Services implement the "disk drive" end of the TPDD protocol.

Simple Text File Transfer (No Client)

You can use any "terminal program" to transfer text files (and BASIC programs in text format, i.e. with a .DO extension) to and from your Model T laptop. Note that some programs "out there" with a .BA extension are in fact text (.DO) files.

Fast Binary Transfer

TBACK is a unique approach to file transfer. It allows freeze/thaw of the entire RAM of the laptop, and now fast installation of .CO files to the laptop.

It is a "thin client" solution where the only client is a small program downloaded to the T just for the purpose of the file transfer. All of the "smarts" run on the modern desktop or laptop.

TBACK also targets developers; being able to quickly offload the full RAM of a system for inspection on the desktop, and to quickly change to completely different configurations is a novel feature introduced by TBACK.
