    Please read the note from our friends in legal before using this file.


    NDSDir is a NetWare NLM utility to display the name and sizes of all the NDS related file from the hidden SYS:_NETWARE directory. It is a handy tool to determine the total size of your NDS database files, including any backup files (created by DSREPAIR) that may be hogging your SYS: volume disk space!

    As an added bonus, NDSDir allows you to copy any and all the NDS-related files from the SYS:_NETWARE directory to a "standard" directory so you can back up these files (see the section in the enclosed HTM file for more information). Although NetBasic shipped with NetWare 4.11 (but not with NetWare 5) and earlier versions of Novell's TOOLBOX.NLM allows you to gain access to the hidden directory, but they can't manipulate all of the NDS-related files as NDSDir can.

    NDSDir also provides a very cost-effective method for backing the NDS of a single-server NetWare 4 or NetWare 5 network. When used in conjunction with FSTrust, you can backup your server with any non-NetWare-aware backup solution!

    See NDSDIR2.HTM enclosed in the ZIP file for detailed information about NDSDir.
