It's getting slightly worse instead of better! I would recommend to stop cleaning!

This is a visual output of the first attempt:

And this is your new attempt after the intense cleaning:

As you can see from the red dots it is no more cleaning but destroying the surface!

Agreed. Something on that one portion of the disk is not getting improved. Don't know if there's actual surface damage as the signal is there, its just getting more noisy with the second dump.

First dump on the left and second on the right. And as with these obsolete medias, side 0/A is the back/underside of the floppy and unformatted side 1/B is the front/topside.

Thanks David,
how can you obtain those images?
It could be really useful for me to understand the quality of the dump i made

It's the HxCFloppyEmulator Tool...

It doesn't matter if you don't have the Hxc hardware! You can load and visualize the KryoFlux data just by loading the first raw file (e.g. track00.0.raw). All the other files will be added and analyzed automatically.

You get the visualization by clicking on "Track Analyzer" and "diskview mode"...
