What I am wondering is, is there a way that I can save a disk as "KryoFlux stream files, preservation", while also checking for bad sectors along the way? Kind of like a hybrid between (in my case) "Apple DOS 400K/800K sector image" and the stream files, where it not only checks for and retries bad sectors until it either gives up or reads it successfully, but also saving every revolution of data like SomeGuy noted.SomeGuy wrote: ↑Fri Mar 01, 2019 11:01 pmPreservation stream dumps keep 5 revolutions of data. If it did not get a good read for a sector it will always show bad. I might be mis-remembering but I think format guided only store one revolution - but with Macintosh disk you really need to keep all five revolutons. But format guided does retry and will keep only successfull reads unless the it exceeds the maximum retries.
I saw "KryoFlux stream files, format guided" in the list, but checking the default settings in the GUI for this option, as well as checking the manual, showed me that it, 1) saves the disk as .img, NOT .raw, and 2) uses the -i0a flag with `dtc`, which the manual noted as a no-no for preservation.
Also, this is probably a dumb question, but does setting the revolutions in the GUI to a higher number than the default, i.e. 20, make the resulting .raw files much larger?
I'm using v3.00 of the KryoFlux GUI under Windows 7 (32-bit).
