Several weeks ago, I had a limited time block to back up / archive some really (at least to me) interesting data, but I had no idea what the format was. These were disks from a 1980s music computer that used 5.25" drives, a PPG Waveterm A.
There are proper tools for working with these disks on the internet, but I knew that I could not set up a system with the proper floppy controller in the limited time window, so I copied them into files using Kryoflux using the "Preservation" settings, hoping that in the future I could set up a system to properly work with the disks, and write whatever I could out to blank floppies and give it a try.
I now have that system set up with the right kind of drive and controller, but when I try to write the files out to disk, I get
Code: Select all
The image is completely unformatted after analysis
77 tracks of 16 sectors of 256 bytes, double side, single density, 500kb/s data rate
Any thoughts on how I might get Kryoflux to try to write these things to disk? Below is a screen shot of the error, as well as a link to an archive of one disk's Kryoflux's stream files. The operating system is Windows XP.
Thanks for any suggestions
