Just a note to all.
Please be aware and make sure to have a double sided and single sided cleaning disk, preferably the wet dry type... at the end of transfer operations for the day... run the cleaning disk in the appropriate drive and make sure to remove the cleaning disk with the drive in the normal open door latch position to dry. This keeps the head clean of decaying disk material. It also prevents a wet or dirty head from doing mayhem. I never start with a cleaning but always end with one.
Further, if a disk fails in one drive it may work just fine in another more sensitive or aligned drive.
It sometimes happens you come across a disk that is bad, raunchy looking or just seems unworkable, there are those here and elsewhere that can process even such nastiness. Sometimes a success, sometimes a partial, or sometimes a wash. Never hurts to try.
Kryoflux, scp, and straight cracks from source fanatics here's a chance. Could be good to get involved.
@n dary and @geezer thanks for moving so quickly on the project. Everyone should give it a good once or twice over and make sure it's a complete deprotection... heading into summer it's so easy to be missed... as the scene gets serious attention during the colder closed in season, I am glad to see good people getting right down to business !!
