I'm already using something that will correctly dump the last disk in a Quarterback set without having to do disk swaps and resetting options

I appreciate the helpful pointers from people, but theres this weird assumption that I don't have a clue what i'm doing with AMIGA DISKS when my speciality for over 20 years has been to deal with...... AMIGA DISKS!

Probably not, but i'll do the question anyway

There's a way to manage Quarterback disks under Windows with some application or it is strictly Amiga only ?

Thanks for attention, chip

I used disksalv just in case there was any deleted files, and there was nothing.

So unless Subzero can remember, its unknown
cant remember, have to listen to ... there are manyy disks named st-00... not really sure what i was up to back then, must-a-be some heavy weed....

Yeah, mostly graphics on that disk. I have found a Vanish source code disk for a couple of Skid Row intros, but Subzero needs to check it out first as to whether or not he's happy for it to be released.

Should be someone knowing TOSEC for sure (otherwise it's just a pain job of blind checking everything (and with no guarantees that there will be a good work done)).
I am not even sure if this tool may help as we are talking about newly created ADF from floppy-disks.

Quarterback was a hard drive backup to floppies Chip, I very much doubt anything could be done on a PC?

Part 07 in the zone

This one has quite a few Quarterback images.

where there is some duplication of Quarterback numbering, for instance there are three completely separate QB18 disks, they are named

QB18.ADF
QB18.1.ADF
QB18.2.ADF

Done in a bid to separate them so no-one thinks i've duped all the same disks.

for those that don't know, the first longword on track 0 (i.e. what would have ordinarily been the bootblock) has the naming convention of QBxx, the xx refers to disk number, and obviously Quarterback keeps requesting disks to image onto until all the data is done.

There is 40 or so images in this archive, managed to get them to compress enough to not exceed the 20mb limit in the zone.

Loads more tomorrow, don't be dissapointed if its another shit load of Quarterback disks, i'll try to image other stuff as well to keep it interesting.

Send a message via MSN to dlfrsilver
you need quaterback 4.0 or 6.0. The only thing to keep in mind is that this tool is NOT compatible with anything else than OFS-FFS.

it corrupts SFS and PFS3 partitions.

Dlfrsilver volunteered on sorting the qb disks out, so once all disks are done, poor lad has some work ahead of him
