On my old laptop I generated the 6-piece syzygy tablesbases. As I remember I downloaded a zip file containing the necessary exe and ran a batch file. I now have a new laptop but can't find the files to download. Can someone send me a link to generating all 6 pieces tablesbases? If possible I don't w...
