Normal write command reads the existing track, changes the data in memory, then writes the changed data to disk. Format command assembles a new track in memory, then writes it to disk. Format is faster because it does not need to read the existing data, it accesses the disk only once per track.

These are characteristics of trackdisk.device, it has nothing to do with TSGUI.
