Hi, thank you for visiting this site!


ZX-Files is a collection of famous, remarkable and enhanced software for the great 8bit home computer platform: Sinclair ZX Spectrum and compatibles.

Every program was tested with the DivSD (aka divMMC aka divIDE) storage interface and its excellent esxDOS operating system.

Many programs run on an original, plain ZX Spectrum, the basic 48K model with hardware add-ons, such as the TurboSound FM or the K-Mouse.

Downloads were prepared on the eLeMeNt ZX computer and MB03+ Ultimate interface, to work with other clones (Sizif-512, ZX-Uno or Omni) and various hardware enhancements and interfaces.


TAR archives are not compressed and can be quickly and easily extracted to your FAT-formatted SD/CF cards by use of the esxDOS dot-command TAR.

Type .TAR -X NAME.TAR to install the content of a tar-package onto your SD card.
