Obtained literally thousands of 3.5″ and 5.25″ floppies lately for Apple II and Apple IIgs and this where it ends to. Total chaos in desktop which is perfectly fine and normal. I love floppies!
This time it’s basicly all non-originals so there’s not much work for 4am’s absolutely stunning preservation software “Passport”. I’ll write an post later with more details about the process i use.
Passport by 4am:

These are preserved screenshots of Apple ][ games, screenshots of the game when finished, the last screen.
Thanks to brothers, Samuel & Simon Ng (Hongkong) for the disks.
These are available now at :
Got an nice donation from Simon Ng all the way from Hongkong. He was kind enough to donate all these for archiving. Even all of them might not be totally original, preserving these will serve the common good and preserving the history of Apple II in Hongkong/China/Taiwan.
-The Dam Busters (Accolade) – Chinese manual
-Project: The Space Station (HesWare) – Chinese manual
-The Halley Project: A Mission in our solar System (Mindscape) – Chinese manual
-Thunderchopper (ActionSoft) – English manual
-Ticket to Hollywood (BlueLion Software) – English manual
-Shard of Spring (SSI) – Chinese manual

-Paperboy (Mindscape Inc.) – English manual
-The Seven Cities of Gold (EOA) – English manual
-Maniac Mansion (Lucasfilm Games) – English manual
-Alice in Wonderland (Windham Classics) – Chinese manual
These games have either original Taiwanese gamebox or game manual (English/Chinese) and have Taiwanese “Pirate” company TERMINATOR-badge on them.
I’ll scan the boxes, disk labels and the game manuals (when in Chinese) for archiving and they’ll be available at http://www.archive.org > “Apple II Chinese Collection” and Asimov-archives.
Some of the English language manuals (or disk images) are already available but the missing ones, will be scanned and uploaded to Archive.org & Asimov-archives.
The disk images will be available as well in Asimov. Most are cracked already, some are been cracked now in 2017 by talented crackers.
I’ll possibly crack these with the help of “Hardcore Computist”/”Computist” magazine just for the learning purposes and as well, the FUN of it.
Fully Pro-Dos compatible.

Few pictures of the unit i have:
It’s small and light and designed to fit the //c style nicely. Wonder how many of these Applied Engineering actually sold?
The switches on the back.
Inside, it uses reqular 3x AAA batteries to keep the date/time.
