Error: Extra Data was found hidden in unused paths of the block header

Post by robbo007 »

Hi guys,
Could someone let me know if this is an ERROR or just the CP of a disk. I'm getting it on some Superlok CP floppies.

"Error: Extra Data was found hidden in unused paths of the block header"

Thanks,

It's all in the manual:http://www.kryoflux.com/download/kryoflux_manual.pdf

Page 18, line 2:

*H Header extra data was found. Data is hidden in unused parts of the block header. Sector images can’t hold such data; warning only.

It's simply data from former writing between the sector borders showing that this floppy was not a genuine original created by a duplicater but written with a wd-style controller...

Thanks David. I did read that a while back but this version looks more complete. Thanks for the link. It's now clear. That could be from the Softguard Superlok 3.0 kit copy protection and the way it was originally written to disk.
