I deleted my file manager in Win 3.11 and I don't know how to restore it. I can't even work out what the program would be that the icon used to run. Any help appreciated as I don't want to have to reinstall to get it back.

Out of curiosity, what are your hardware specs, and reason for running 3.11?

reason, it's part of the museum. Was trying to get my Zip disc to go again, but I think there is actually something wrong with the drive itself, tried it on two otehr machines with different discs and no go :-(

There is also an NT version. Be careful if you "download" a version as it may be incorrect.

thanks for the warning, but all genuine software so I assume I'm fine.

The zip drives were natoriously unreliable. The click of death IIRC, I had a few that passed away.

I'm nearly there. I've tried using the PIF manager to recreate the shortcut in main, but when I drag the PIF to the main group, it creates a DOS icon and does not run, how do I create the File manager icon?


ps. ZIP drive was very unreliable, but I did manage to read my exisiting discs before it died, so that is something.
