All Quarterback Disks belong to ONE set of backup. Is it clear which disks belong to which set, or are all the disks mixed up?

(Means 3x QB18, each from another set)

If mixed up, its gonna be a "try and error" to find out which disk belongs to which set. Can play around with it (QB displays a message if a disk is inserted which doesnt belong to the current set) but will take time and need to be sure that ALL available Quarterback disks are already ADF'ed...

(Also if a disk from a set is missing or corrupt, not a big deal - as QB just continues leaving a few files from that set out)

Unfortunately no idea on the order of disks, all three of those qb18 disks were from the same row in the box, so,im guessing trial and error, but Denis sounds confident he can do it, so im happy to let him get on with it once this entire batch is done.

You can use ADF-Workshop. The creation date can be used to separate sets :
Code:
File selected             : Wonder Dog (1993)(Core)(Disk 1 of 2)[cr CLS][Quarterback archive].adf
File size                 : 901.120 bytes
CRC32                     : $46A75EA4
File loaded as an ADF     : Quarterback Backup Disk (Qb)

Bootblock specification:
 - Identification with AWP v1 engine : <Data> Quarterback Backup Type2 Disk #001 (Created on 1993.11.09 00:08)

File selected             : Wonder Dog (1993)(Core)(Disk 2 of 2)[cr CLS][Quarterback archive].adf
File size                 : 901.120 bytes
CRC32                     : $39437068
File loaded as an ADF     : Quarterback Backup Disk (Qb)

Bootblock specification:
 - Identification with AWP v1 engine : <Data> Quarterback Backup Type2 Disk #002 (Created on 1993.11.09 00:08)

Yes adf workshop indicated the date, and the number of the set made. This allows to regroup a full disk set of Quarterback archive in order to access the whole content.

Ok, i will then rename those archives this will make it more evident to other people.

Just one note to people : DON'T and NEVER use Quarterback on Amiga with Hard drives installed with SFS and PFS3. OFS and FFS only when restoring.

I have trashed 2 years ago my hard drive content by restoring a QB archive on my A1200 which was SFS formated.

Can we get back to questioning Galahads ability to complete this task. I've not rolled my eyes enough today so need some help.

Ok, i have checked the files. I need the more and most possible amount of dump for these sets

They are not complete enough right now to be able to check the content.

I'll wait for Phil's next dump zip.

It is. But i need Phil to do process more QB disks. The actual sets are not complete, so i can't say what's in the archives.

but for the moment, for what i checked, there are warpers, including Mok one's, and sources for intros, + BBS installation.

I found no errors during the checking.

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

So unless Subzero can remember, its unknown

Thanks Galahad. Could you give me an example of a comp disk name which would possibly contain mods?

I can't remember them all, but there are some modules on some of the comp disks as well, so you might want to check them out
