Backup Original Disk of Elite
Hi all,

my 25 year old disk of Elite never got a backup as I was never able to copy it. I tried different copy programs like XCopy but the unreadable blocks are a problem. Any hints how to manage it? I think it's time for a backup :crazy

Have you tried nibble mode in x-copy? Also, try the cracked version of PowerCopy by Stingray: http://eab.abime.net/showpost.php?p=753776&postcount=9 but not sure if it's copylock as well?

I've got IPF's of Elite, original release and v2.0 so depends which version you need. If you have a Kryoflux you can write the IPFs back to disk for a 100% backup.

Update: I've created an extended ADF in WinUAE and copied each of the IPFs to it using x-copy nibble and the eADF loads, I can get past the manual protection and get into the game! So, use x-copy in nibble mode and it should work! I also checked the copy with the Elite WHDLoad installer but it errored on track 78 saying No sync signal? Same happened for the IPF too!!
