3 1/2″ Floppy

Yesterday learned how to backup the controller onto the 3 1/2″ floppy drive (File -> Archive -> All) .KRC creates an “archive.zip” file which I sent to Bill at Kuka.

Instructions from Bill are to copy files from the D: partition replacing files on the C: drive. Had to do it all in Windows Explorer, not the controller interface (remembering Windows keyboard commands comes in handy). The idea is to replace the files in these folders:


With files of the same name from these folders:
