Checking / Scanning ADF Files

I have a few demo ADF files that I have ripped via an Armiga unit... that arent in the FTP.

I would like to virus scan / check files etc ... the normal stuff the experts here are performing before I upload them to the FTP.

So the question is ... what tools should I be using? I have a PC, and can run anything in the emulator.

Im not at home at the moment, but IIRC ADFScan lets you Virusscan Adf's under Windows - which should be fast and efficient...

Some time ago I tried it and it worked fine.

1.9b1 should be the most recent version(?)

Hope this helps...

AVAST keeps deleting adf-files from my harddisk, because they have Amiga-viruses. I don't know how reliable and accurate that is, though.

Edit: Oh wait, I think it was McAfee on my other PC! But you could research if a PC virus scanner can perform this anyway.

Cool just tried the tool, is there anything for scanning the files / crc checks? I remember a tool a while ago which would analyse the contents and reported if the files in DOS was corrupted ... I think?

Maybe you're talking about: ADF-Workshop?
