A The Man From U.N.C.L.E. fanfiction archive named after a top secret classification in the series. File 40 archives gen and slash, including some stories from zines (archived with permission). It was one of the earliest Muncle fanfic archives.

Comments from 2000:
File Forty: The U.N.C.L.E. Fan Fiction Archive:The File Forty site, located at http://www.geocities.com/Area51/Orion/5317/index.html "just up the street from the Dairy Queen", as site administrator Jan Bowman likes to put it, is the home of the U.N.C.L.E. fan fiction archives. Although a relative newcomer to the world wide web, having just celebrated its first birthday this past November, File Forty has already logged an impressive 55,900 visitors-a figure that has to make it one of the most popular U.N.C.L.E. sites on the web. None of which is too surprising when you consider the impressive collection o f U.N.C.L.E. fen fiction, both gen and slash, that the site's two administrators, the aforementioned Jan and her cohort, Kate D., have amassed. Featured writers include Patti Ellis, Mona R., Chakja, Ravenschild, Kate D., Jo Mulvey, Debra Hicks, Cindy Walker, Shelley Wright, and Jill, as well as many others who are well known to fans of U.N.C.L.E. fiction. So, keep this one bookmarked for the dreary February days ahead when the lovely white snows o f Christmas have all turned to brown slush. Because downloading some new U.N.C.L.E. fan fiction is probably preferable to dyeing your hair eggplant, or running off with a saxophone player from Kansas City to escape the seasonal ennui. Not that there's anything wrong with purple tresses . . . or saxophones, but File Forty will probably still seem like a good idea after the vernal equinox. [1]
