A nice feature would be too rename the resulting adf with the tosec name, or is that the case already?

sorry for the delay, I thought it was implemented in the release.
The drag'n'drop will be proposed at the next update, however, at the last publication, I had requested a whitelisting for some antivirus...

I think adding this possibility but I have not enough time right now to work on this

welcome on the forum chip ,
you can convert and save a badly decompress file by enabling these options in the menu:
Code:
Convert/Fix
|_ADF options
   |_Even on error
   |_Even incomplete
I will modify some texts may be to make it more obvious

incomplete DMS/WRP can be trainers or fix, they are not bad but not sufficient to generate a complete working ADF file

Zoom format support is not planned due to lack of time, interest and because I'm not a professional programmer

By default, ADFW prevent the user to generate a bad file and a message explains why!
Code:
File selected             : ATX-APTR.DMS
File size                 : 19.794 bytes
CRC32                     : $3B3CC244
File loaded as an DMS     : DMS Archive

   C61    11.264     5.787     5.524  Heavy2  - - -  $7061  $5C0D  $FE12     No

WARNING: 1 bad cylinder(s) detected!
WARNING: It seems that this DMS file is a patch, splitted Or incomplet....

ADF file not saved : 1 bad cylinder detected!
In this, example, two problems are reported:
- Decompression bug ($EA58), a disease that led me to create ADFW!
- The file does not contain all the cylinders needed to create a functional ADF


By forcing the conversion, the generated file will have additional tags to report the problem: ATX-APTR.DMS > ATX-APTR[u][b].adf
[u] for underdump
[b] for bad
and ADFW will show this message:
"ADF file saved but 77 cylinder(s) missed and 1 bad cylinder(s) detected!"

In the first post, I added a new database package:
ADF-Workshop DB - Amiga (Warez Scene-v2016-04-15).zip
|_Unrenamed Set - Warez scene Pack1 (v2016-04-14).db
|_Unrenamed Set - Warez scene Pack2 (v2016-04-14).db

|_Unrenamed Set - Warez scene Pack4 (v2016-04-14).db
|_Unrenamed Set - Warez scene Pack5 (v2016-04-15).db

A total of 153.525 ADF with their "original" names.
Code:
File selected             : UTBTR.WRP
File size                 : 45.559 bytes
CRC32                     : $7761D32A
File loaded as an WRP     : Warp v1.1

Hi chip,

It's perfectly reasonable to want to salvage as much as possible from a damaged archive of any kind by extracting the content while ignoring CRC errors. I know of one utility which will extract zipped and gzipped archives using a brute force method, but as yet there is none for use with DMS archives.

You have to remember that ADF-Workshop has been created primarily as a tool for preparation, validation and comparison of disk images for inclusion in TOSEC and other databases, and as such, your request is rather beyond its scope.

Some while ago, I managed to recover the content of a set of damaged DMS archives by using utilities I found on the web to determine the actual and expected checksums of the damaged compressed tracks, and then replacing the expected checksums with the actual ones in the damaged archives using a binary file editor so that the ADF images, albeit damaged, could be extracted.

Then, after repairing a few trivial errors in one of the resulting ADFs, I recompressed it and, finally, because the damage had a systematic cause, I was able to discover what it was and repair the others directly.

Although I made fairly comprehensive notes of how I did this at the time, and I still have all the utilities and disk images to hand, I haven't yet quite got it worked out in sufficient detail to write the definitive guide "Extracting DMS archives using a brute force method".

When I have, I shall make it available in a new thread here in these forums, complete with a coverdisk containing all the tools needed.

Do you think you might find that useful?

I'm not interested in recovering the files from the disk image
I guess this is possible to do with tools like the one you used, indeed

I wanted only a .ADF in a place of a .DMS, only that .-)
I wasn't interested in recovering the files from the disk image either, I was looking to repair a set of corrupted DMS disk images, so that they would unpack correctly to the corresponding ADF disk images, and in that I was successful.

But since then (early 2005), a tool has become available for unpacking a damaged DMS file by ignoring CRC errors to salvage the ADF, which one might well have a better chance of fully recovering.

xDMS 1.3.3 is available here.

It is a Win32 command line utility with the following features:
Code:
 xDMS  v1.3.3  -  Portable DMS archive unpacker  -  Public Domain
 Written by     Andre Rodrigues de la Rocha  <adlroc@usa.net>
 Maintained by  Heikki Orsila <heikki.orsila@iki.fi>

 Usage: xdms [options] <command> {<dms_file[.dms]> [+output]}

 Commands :
     t : Test DMS archives
     u : Unpack DMS archives to disk images
     z : Unpack to disk images and compress it with gzip
     x : Extract files inside DMS archives using readdisk
     v : View DMS archives information
     f : View full information
     d : Show attached FILEID.DIZ
     b : Show attached Banner

 Options :
    -f : Override errors (for desperate data salvaging)
    -q : Quiet
    -v : Verbose
    -d <destdir>  : Set destination directory
    -p <password> : Decrypt encrypted archives using password
To unpack damaged files requires the -f option and u command.

This version of the tool did not become available until 2006, but it now means that nobody will be needing more guidance than that which appears in the code box above.

Source code is available here.

xDMS is inferior to ADF workshop, and by far....

I still love the way they removed my name from it, it had some function that made a random temp filename that didnt exist in the win32 libraries so i fixed it so it would compile on win32 and sent it to heikki as no working version existed at the time. Nice to see they removed my name from the history. (Trivial fix... but still)

Your recent comment brought this topic to my attention.

I'm wondering if there is a similar tool that doesn't rely on TOSEC databases. Something for my personal non-TOSEC collection to manage every ADF I have whether I created it myself, got it from gamebase, tosec or other source. Or can ADF workshop do this as well? Without loading databases?

Such tool exists, probably Crashdisk has reason(s) to not publish!

Isnt it the option "Save Banner" of "Convert/Fix" menu?

I doubt ADF-Workshop is updated anymore. Crashdisk should just release the source and PureBasic dependency could be eventually dropped out.
