Does it "only" detect or (optionally) also remove the virus? Either way it's a nice feature!

Only detect and warn - GoADF will not replace a real antivirus program.

Ok, no problem. As I said, it’s a nice feature nevertheless.

What do you plan to add up in GoADF! ?

would be good to have the possibility to replaced corrupted files with good versions and keeping the day and time of the files without them being modified.

I'm sorry Denis, but if the TOSEC guys have no easy way to do this... and have had decades of experience.

Why do you suggest / think that someone creating an "Amiga .ADF reading / writing tool" could somehow implement this?

Crashdisk really has nothing to worry about here...

Your request to Vojo makes no sense what-so-ever... as much as we would all really like some tool / app that could achieve this.

Yeah I get that, but what your asking Vojo to try and add to his "Amiga only" tool is probably impossible...

If it was that simple then I'm sure the TOSEC guys would have already added this feature to say ADF-Workshop (formerly DMS-Workshop) or coded another tool.

This option exists for ADF-Workshop and it is not public as it makes bad repairs very difficult to detect.
When working on a preservation project, this is a problem...

In fact, this is because BAD disks should be out of the tosec release, only kept as working files until repaired.
