Re: Stream backup quality of 3,5" drives

Just one more question - what are the minimum requirements to add floppy drives to the KF compatibility list? Do they have to be able to dump and restore certain heavily protected floppy disks in order to be called 'compatible'? Please give me a short info on this so I can add several drives to the thread regarding compatibility. I do also have some more drives I could "test" in order to add them to the list.

And do you think the above tested floppy drives are more or less equal and I'm worrying about details which simply do not matter - or is it a good practice to preserve "difficult" disks with more than one floppy drive?
A1200 + Indivision AGA + ACA1233 & Blizzard 1230IV+SCSI + easynet
A600 + Indivision ECS + ACA620 + A604n // CD32 + SX32 MK2 + Indivision AGA
A500 + ACA500 + 5 spare A500's (one with the C= key, Serial No 3358)

I knew it! :D

So it is ok to add these drives to the compatibility list?
A1200 + Indivision AGA + ACA1233 & Blizzard 1230IV+SCSI + easynet
A600 + Indivision ECS + ACA620 + A604n // CD32 + SX32 MK2 + Indivision AGA
A500 + ACA500 + 5 spare A500's (one with the C= key, Serial No 3358)
