....to be honestly, most of the remaining ADFs are either PD games or any variation of existing sets (alternative [a]), but of course i have not checked every single ADF until now, i hope there are some rare versions hidden.
Anyway thanks for sharing your collection.

Fine?
It was the worst thing that could happen!
I know it even in some detail:
Normally, they used HEAVY1 algorithm, also because some demos broke if you packed them with HEAVY2. BUT: some BBSes used auto-recompressing techniques which turned HEAVY1 into HEAVY2, breaking the images in the process!!
That's just why zeg and others have to dig into their private archives to find 100% working copies, because the BBS-drawn ones often turn out to be knackered.

Oh yes, DMS has really wreaked lots of havoc.

Even before considering the obvious efforts you went to, I can't believe you said that! Seriously, two point eight gigabytes of data! Of Amiga data, at that! That is a lot of old code and you'll have made plenty of people happy with this chance to rummage through all of those files. Good for you on sticking with it and though I haven't yet ventured towards the FTP at all, thank you for being involved and making this happen.

You've done a good thing.

P.S. It's a bit late and may not matter anyway, but you might want to edit out the log-in details from your earlier post.

Checked against all Amiga dats now.
Remaining nonTOSEC size is ~1,6GB.
I have cleaned Franko`s folder on Fileserver.

@thgill: Any progress with dumping your disks?

Nope, just means that there are not only games on that DVD 1.6 GB is the 'final' result after comparing them with every TOSEC DAT file (demo, educational, application etc.). Still quite a lot left

There are some rare disks, but you have to search a lot.
Just found rare "CLS" crack of "Cloud Kingdoms".
