Question Diavolo backup: anyone able to restore this?

guys pls ...

This disk (-> zone) is a HD backup I found on on old CD, and it *could* be there is more than just one file, but I'm not too sure.

I've tried to restore the disk using various versions of Diavolo Backup / Backup Pro, but no success.
Maybe it can only be restored on real Amiga, because the hard drive detection does not appear to work under WinUAE (probably needs genuine HDD controller).

Thanks for any help / insights

I don't have that one.
It should, however, not require D2000, since the big file stored on the disk has a 1992 date.

The backup file is truncated, it just stops part the way through a file called spr08.

You can see this for yourself using a hex editor, compare Diavolo's file catalog entries at offsets 0x180-0x156e with the compressed data and you will see that all is OK until you reach the data entry for spr08.

The files that are intact within the backup could probably be unpacked manually but is it worth it?

This is Guardian CD32 with Anthrox trainer and Blackhawk joypad fix.
Nothing interesting, this (file) backup is too short, all files from incomplete backup
except last (is too short) can be restored.
