I'll be 40 this month (Oct 2019). So maybe I'm the youngest?

When I was 14 my parents bought me a PC for school work, assisted by my friend's father who was so into computers that he had 2 of them networked in his house. Novell Netware with co-ax cable I believe it was.

He used XTreeGold 2.00 to back up the new PC onto floppy disks (3.5", not that old!) and left me a copy. While he was into computers he wasn't into paying for software (sigh).

I kept XTreeGold around as long as DOS was around and only stumbled on ZtreeWin in the Windows XP days. I'm not running it every day, just when a tagged-file operation is called for or one of it's clever rename syntaxes is needed. I particularly like being able to search tagged files for text, when Explorer can't be convinced to look inside non-indexed files.
