You've lost me there, i'm afraid. Are you saying that it's impossible for KryoFlux to have corrected the drive's deliberate, physical misalignment simply by recalibrating or otherwise?

Thanks for the recompilation of these utilities, clenched! I'll try them out when I get time.

I've noticed that the included 'Decodstd.pas' routine writes German text to the screen (whereas the others write English text), and no option to R(E)calibrate is provided - only (A)bbrechen (Abort), (I)gnorieren (Ignore) and (W)iederholen (Retry), so presumably your version does the same. I am unable to differentiate between the (R)etry and R(E)calibrate options provided by the English version anyway.

I have added extra notation to your first screen output illustration where I have discovered the meanings of the numbers. If you would care to add them to your post above, then I can delete this here version.

Code:
 
  _Format identifier
  |    _Track #
  |    |   _Sector #
  |    |   |   _ Sectors to fill in the gap
  |    |   |   |

##### - one # for each completed cylinder.
Note that 'Sector #' + 'Sectors to fill in the gap' = 11 for a standard track length.
