Does trackdisk.device use precompensation at all? Maybe that would be helpful when writing to higher-numbered tracks (nearer the centre of the disk)? I've noticed that with many disks which go partly bad, the tracks which go bad first seem to be the inner ones where data density is highest. I wonder whether diskspare.device (which can use 82 tracks) uses precompensation for tracks 80 & 81.
