Hi. What software did you use to do the labels, because you can read the disk from the top. That would save a stranger a lot of time finding the correct disk. I used to know what disk box I had to go to find the correct disk or game.

Simon, you didn't say, will all be cleaned up eventually?

Also why not the cleaned version replace the non cleaned and you guys keep both?
(in case something went wrong?)

Maybe it would be better for each cleaned (or in the end for all of them together) to instead just add an extra archive of "junk"?
(no need for duplicates, but disks with errors etc. sometimes are useful)

@NLS; let's just get the whole collection .ADF'd first "as is".

Next steps:

... Revisit disks that had issues; by using alternate hardware / software / methods.
... Final clean up.

Patience man

So you have a big bunch of QIC-80 tapes in the attic, filled with disk images ready to see the light of day again?

Nope, we deliver the junk and the community can do the rest if they like ( or not ) . If the cleaning stops at some point ... so be it. We just do our part.

Divide and conquer is the way to go.

@TMB : do you have amiga modules (i.e. music)? Always looking for original modules rather than ripps.
