  1. Yeah, hardware copy only on this one. Full of duplicate sectors. Gorf (1982)(Roklan)(US) - T0 - CRC s5, Duplicate s17 x2, T1-38 - Duplicate s17 x2
  2. Here's an atx from the atr. I've never seen a protected version as mentioned previously. Eastern Front (1941) (1981)(APX)(US).atx You can create an atx from any atr easily with a8rawconv if that is your personal preference, but you gain nothing from it (just a slightly larger file).
  3. Here you go. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1UIRXcfVS_Rf9zaYNfY9BD415zqquKpzX/view?usp=sharing
  4. Here's one in use. No need for external power. You can have multiple drive 1's, etc. Just don't have them turned on at the same time, works great.
  5. 7-Zip 7z versions if it helps. I'll use this going forward. Zips still active if needed. Collection 8 https://drive.google.com/file/d/1g01XR0Y767TxrL4JLyH8p5hlgSAGHy58/view?usp=sharing Previous Collections 1-7 https://drive.google.com/file/d/1JB6ARUYCAqNLDaCQPPC2JXrjT7r_ta7n/view?usp=sharing
  6. The Protected Backups folder is what I have previous labelled Non Originals, as I always include scans for the actual Originals and separate folder. I can confirm these are just hand labelled disks where I’ve found protection still present.
  7. Downloads and extracts fine for me (Win 10). Anyone else having issues? I'm using 7-Zip. Some of the file names are maxed on a few of the Menu disks, which may be too long for some OS and generating an error maybe?
  8. Collection 8 300+ Disks, 200+ Hours, 500ml+ IP, 100+ Cotton buds later, here we are. (There was a lot of rough disks, thanks to MILF for helping with the last few). Quite a few rares and missing from what I can tell. As always, please check and enjoy. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1EAgTn3ctB396Y0tv4DsDqhaRgqCZcdNw/view?usp=sharing Previous Collections https://drive.google.com/file/d/1lmybx2yFXPOaNk3x4WL6Gv3cGnMIoneQ/view?usp=sharing

    Hi Dely, I've been using it for several hours now, over multiple disks and I have a couple of suggestions for you if you plan to update in the future. When wanting to copy a single sector, if I could leave the end sector blank and just hit return it would save typing it in again. If the maximum number of retries could be increased or possibly a continuous option that can be aborted. I find most bad CRC sectors can be recovered eventually, but it can need hundreds of retries (this is after disk cleaning and trying multiple drives). Great utility. Thanks

    This is fantastic! Just what I need to help with recovering disks with a few bad sectors. Chomping through a batch right now. Only copier I could find without a manual retry was APE on the PC.
  11. FYI DiskManager dump Collection to be posted in the near future
  12. Found in a collection I'm currently dumping. Was risky due to the legendary Synapse disk quality (worst one I've seen) but I was able to get a clean dump. DiskManager (1981)(Synapse Software)(US)[OS-B][BASIC].zip
  13. Happy New Year! Dump of a collection of disks from eBay of mostly utilities, which looks like it may contain some rares/missing. Some might be PD due to content/no protection but not sure so included scans. 130 X.E. Disk Copier was the on the B side of RAM-DOS XL Smarty was the on the B side of GamesPac 7 - 8 Bit Arcade Collection 7 https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Cdj3oSciabpmilLkQIbcfdjVEnZ37ovy/view?usp=sharing Previous Collections https://drive.google.com/file/d/111QioYca414ZbD64bQ88WhcMawlxD9iS/view?usp=sharing
  14. This might help from my backup guide when writing ATX files with 20-21 sector tracks. You can also do this to a specific track only by adding -t. a8rawconv p.atx scp0:96tpi -p 96 -t 5 Atari Disk Preservation and Restore Guide.pdf -p (50-200) - When writing an ATX and tracks larger than 19s are present you will need to add the -p command which adjusts the timing, otherwise sectors will be missing and you will see the message below. The general rule I’ve discovered is -p 96 for 20s and -p 91 for 21s. Ex - a8rawconv p.atx scp0:96tpi -p 96 Adjusting the timings can also have beneficial effects on some older disks, which will only normally run on an 810 drive. By using -p 100+ I’ve found you can sometimes create a copy which will run fine on a 1050. There are limits though, anything below 81 and too high will not produce a readable track. This means that you cannot write ATX files with very large tracks. Writing the raw SCP file is the only way to produce these.
