Hi there all of you Atari Disk preservers out there, as you all know I have the manual scanned for the Atari ST Protection Techniques, but this is a special edition. What I mean is that I have enclosed a tutorial on how to use this program for not protecting programs, but using it for copying programs. If done right this program is very powerful, and as you all know I have been trying to crack ST Diagnostics disk as well. I enclose a detailed set of instructions, a non-working copy of the ST Diagnostics Disk, a disk with all of the ST Diagnostics Disk Tracks carefully reproduced by myself over a period of 36 hours. All disks are in ST format, I enclosed FloImage in zip form, all of the tools that you will need are in the zip file.
Note that with the Analyze tool of the protector disk you can check out the protection on any disk, Create Format will write a custom track for you, BUT you will need a PC with an internal floppy drive, and the most important item, a real working Atari Drive. If you don`t have a PC to make the Atari disks with, contact me in a PM and I will make up all of the disks for you on my Windows XP machine, totally compatable with the Atari ST, for that matter any disk on the Tosek list can be done this way, contact me again if there is something else you need on floppy and have no way of doing that.

PS: I have given up on cracking the ST Diagnostics disk, am concentrating on making a working copy of it now, the thing is that the disk used must be totally erased and I am trying to figure out how to do that with The Protector. If all else fails, use a big magnet to bulk erase the disk before writing the protection, use Flo-image to copy just the first 40 tracks to the disk after protecting it all 26 tracks (I must tell you its a big project for anyone that wants to take it on, and believe me the program disk diagnostics is worth it, my original works now.
