AMIGA ROCKNIGHT RV300-C

>The Amiga RocKnight RV300-C is an antivirus device for Commodore Amiga Computer, and to be clear it’s an “useless device” .

It works exclusively when a secondary floppy drive, the external one, is connected to Amiga then this device blocks any attempt that comes from any program in memory to write over the floppy disk track system like a Boot Virus does .

Maybe this device was designed for commodore users that forget to protect floppy disks from writing when circumstances request caution but there are also many programs that run in memory able to protect disks from boot loader viruses , although there are viruses like the Saddam one that don’t care of the track system and so can’t be blocked by this very primitive hardware antivirus .

Anyway , it was worth to remember for your Commodore Retro Mania Collection .
