I've mentioned before that native oberon (even just the 1M4
installer diskette) has massive debug/recovery facilities.
Even down to inspecting & manipulating on partitions, sectors
- as I remember.

Have you got a spare partition; or one which you can sacrifice ?
Apparently not.
Under n-o you could make it n-o type and copy the files across.
Apparently you don't have a minimal linux boot disk ?

Have you got a spare machine which can also run V24.Obj ?
Perhaps you can spend a few minutes to document how to
modify the existing V24.Panel functionality to :
   V24Gadgets.Send <file>  ?

Then perhaps you can make a Configuration.DoText script of:---
V24Gadgets.Send <file1>
V24Gadgets.Send <fileN>
-----end script

And go for coffee, it it's a bit slow.

We need a documented simple method the copy from notebook
to pc via n-o.  The nul modem wiring is available.
Remember V24 needs to find the port closed/free.
