Utility disks

Is there a collection of utility disks somewhere on the net? By utility disk I mean those disks full of software (both PD and commercial) that often got spread around because of X-Copy. I have extracted those I have to ADF and want to check if they're commonly available or should be submitted somewhere.

You might want to get yourself familiar with the TOSEC amiga section.

Where can I find up-to-date information and a list of disks? tosec.info is gone, tosec.org seems outdated, and Google just gives me a bunch of torrents.

Speaking of Utility disks.. On my FIRST floppy disk I had an Utility Compilation which was named something like "Public Enemy #1" and it included quite some utilities amongst which was "CliMate" and a graphics grabber program which searched the memory for pictures. Would love to see that utility comp again, but can't find it anywhere Went through tousands of disks I could find on the net

Done, and I threw in a few PD disks and a doc disk that I couldn't find on google in half a minute. I have a few more PD and cover disks, but they're from a Norwegian company and possibly not that interesting if you don't read Norwegian.

Ok, I did. The Norwegian/Data-Tronic directory contains disks related to the Norwegian company Data-Tronic. They published the magazine Den Norske Hjemmedataklubben (changed name to Giga later), maintained their own PD series, and some other disks which could be subscribed to for a higher fee than PD disks (Agataon, changed name to Amiga Hack for programs and something else I don't remember for games later). There's also a disk with PD software which was some kind of prize ("hurtigsvarspremie").

I also uploaded a few cover disks from some more well-known magazines. Feel free to delete any that are already easily available on the net. If I find some other interesting stuff, I'll upload it.

Hi absence,
I can't find your uploads... did you put them in a specific directory?
