 Help me track down the source of this archive

Several people sent me an archive of BASIC programs. I have a folder (my TODO list for the site) where it's filed under 2016-07-12. The archive is named "Általános iskolai anyagok" (Elementary school stuff), there's also a ZIP called "Összesprg" (all programs).

It took me a very long while to sort it all out (now done), and I'm in the process of uploading them. A bunch of them are from BGYTKF (see here: http://plus4world.powweb.com/series/BGYTKF_Programs), and I managed to get in touch with one of the authors. He asked me where I got the programs from, as they were not widely released. So... It's awesome that we managed to preserve these, but I have no idea who backed them up to be honest

Can anyone shed light on this?

Oh jeez, I've got it too, and I've received it from someone, but too much time passed and now I can't remember who he was...

It may have originated from Facebook and forwarded to you by me. I pinged the guy who may be the culprit, we'll see

EDIT: OK, so indeed, it originated from a Dropbox account linked in on Facebook: here. The disks were purchased from a teacher called István Vernyik whose name was also shown on the floppy sleeves.

Awesome, thanks for figuring that out. The name "István Vernyik" did come up in a few very short BASIC programs, so it does look like it's his personal archive.

(edit) Looks like this is him: https://www.nool.hu/helyi-kozelet/csillaghaborus-bucsuajandek-15691/
