Trace would supply format files to read-in standard formatted disks, but if the format was non-standard, as in a protected disk then the duplicator would have to write a format file of their own to read-in the floppy.

I am very pleased we manged to get that sorted. We all agree that blind copying (flux duplication) was depreceated and for everything that wasn't known anyway (standard formats natively supported by duplication equipment) scripts had to be created. Even if this was a fully automated process in some scenarios, the format was understood and then written, so dupes could be verified.
