Great work.

Do you have a file list as a t-file? What years does this collection span? Any underground hack/phreak compilations in this collection?

Thanks

Good work, I see their are quite a few 'Empt' adfs in the archive. Will take a while to sort them.

This collection will consist of multiple parts because of its scale.
These are all disks I have collected over the years.
Disk cleaning is now done at the time of imaging to save time, but it still remains at about 25% success rate.

Random Aussie ADF Archive #02 Part 1 - icycool

Total Disks.. 2173
-Bad Disks.. Many
-Duplicates Removed.. 186
-TOSEC Removed.. 647
=Total New Disks.. 1340

Percentage of New Disks.. 61.66%

Note, there will be some duplicate filenames across all of the parts. Be aware of this.
Some files have been reverse renamed, but not checked.

Maybe 3-4 more unless I have overestimated the extent of my own collection
But certainly 1-2

Wow! I'm curious to know exactly how long this actually took?! Kudos to you for not only imagining but cross referencing and trying to fix too!

Each disk takes about 1 minute to image on a stock A1200, however ages ago when I had an accelerator card installed, it was about 45 seconds.
Naturally bad disks take a lot longer, and you have to judge each one on how long you want to spend on it.
For instance, the end pile of bad was ~150 disks for this lot, and each of those took well over a minute to establish the success rate of perseverance.

Is that 1 minute including typing in the new filename of the .adf created?

The program does that automatically, at the end I just cross reference the data with another list to provide probable better filenames for some images.
