Re: ST Recover, a new ST disk utility on Windows

ST Recover is a great program, I have recovered some 20-25 Atari ST disks that were totally unreadable by any other program, all stuff that is originals I will be putting them online later on. Who do I talk to about donating $$$ towards the project it is worth it.
