Re: Educational Archive not in STH

Could this be related to the issue that affected the reporting of used tracks on the DLM titles? 20 x 2560 (or &14 x &A00) would give total data length of just 51200 (or &C800), whereas the SSD contains more than this? :? I've attached the SSD created from de-FSDing the image i'd got. J...

@Daniel - No problem. I'll bring it along on the 21st. @billcarr2005 - My disc is Version 2 as well but is ADFS. Your DFS ones should be the same software just on a different filing system. Provided they don't do any *DISC or *DRIVE commands they could be copied onto ADFS to complete my set. Thanks ...

Does anyone have a copy of the Signature Disc for Advanced Folio by Tedimen Software in an unprotected state? [-o< [-o<

My copy is a 3.5" ADFS version and is very well protected. It works but will take a long time to crack even if I am able to do it.

Thanks in anticipation.
