Presentation
AUFIT is the acronym for Atari Universal Floppy-Disk Image Tool. This document
describes the usage of the AUFIT and BatchAufit Programs.
The Aufit program analyzes and converts Atari Floppy Disk images. Results from
analysis can be displayed using different Graphical and Text windows views. The
floppy disk image can also be converted to several formats used by emulators. For
example the Aufit program is frequently used to convert input Stream files to a format
suitable for Atari emulators. It is for example possible to convert .raw or .scp stream
files to the Pasti .stx format used by many Atari emulators.
Currently the supported input formats are .scp SuperCard Pro and KryoFlux .raw
and the supported output formats are .stx format for protected diskette and .st, .msa
for non-protected diskettes as well as .raw stream file
Aufit performs deep analysis of floppy disk images and displays very detailed
information. For example it is possible to display the disk layout, to detect most of the
key disk protections used by a game, or to analyze the quality of the disk image.
The analysis of the FD content allows, in some cases, an automatic correction of
errors found during imaging. For example it is sometimes possible to correctly save
an image with partially damaged sectors.
The program has been designed to be as simple as possible to use for casual users
only interested in converting files. In fact conversion of images can be done in batch
mode without user intervention.
However the program also provides powerful features to deeply analyze floppy
content for more advanced users.
Program Download / Installation
The Aufit and BatchAufit programs are available either as installable or as portable
applications from http://info-coach.fr/atari/software/pc-projects/Aufit.php:
The programs run under Windows Vista SP2, Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8/8.1, and
Windows 10. The program requires the Microsoft.NET Framework 4.5 or above.

The installable version uses the ClickOnce technology from Microsoft that allows
to check for a newer version from Internet. When a new version is available you
will be ask if you want to automatically install it. This implies that the program is
not installed in the standard location: The ClickOnce deployment of Aufit creates
an "Aufit" shortcut in "DrCoolZic" Program Group under Start menu:
C:\Users\Your_Login\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu.
And the actual program is actually installed inside the following directory.
C:\Users\Your_Login\AppData\Local\Apps\2.0\
To install the program just execute the setup.exe file.

The portable version does not uses ClickOnce technology and therefore cannot
check for new version. To use the portable version just unpack the complete
content of the release in one directory and run the program from there.

Running Aufit
The program can be started by using the Aufit shortcut provided in the start menu, or
by double clicking on an image file associated with the Program.
When the program starts you will see the following window:
The Aufit windows contains three main regions:
 The first top row contains:
 The Load Image button allows to specify an image to load,
 The Reload button allows to reload an already specified image.
 Once loaded the name of the image file loaded is displayed next to the
Reload button.
 The Rev field indicates the revolution currently used, as well as the number of
revolutions, followed by a – and + sign that allows to select a different
revolution number see Selecting a specific revolution.
 The Screenshot button allows to save a picture of the Aufit window.
 The Update button checks on the Web if a new version of the program is
available (only for the installable version).
 The Help button displays this document.
 The second row contains the track grid region on the left and the Histogram /
Event Log region on the right.
 The third row region contains different tabs used for specific functions:
Track view, Disk view, Data view, Master view, Analysis, and Save image.

Checking for Update
When you click the Check Update button, the program
check on Internet if a new version is available. If a new
version is available you are proposed to install it and restart
the program.
Getting Help
When you click the Help button, the program displays this
user’s manual.
Loading Image Files
After starting Aufit the first thing to do is to load a Floppy disk image.
This image can be composed of a single file SuperCopy Pro “.scp” file or of a set of
KryoFlux “.raw” files.
In the latter case all the .raw files, that compose the image, must be located in a
single directory and must all have the same “root” name followed by .TrackNum
followed by .Side followed .raw. This is the standard naming convention produced by
the dtc program. For example you can have a directory that contains the files:
awesome.00.0.raw, awesome.00.1.raw, awesome.01.0.raw etc. To read all these
files you just need to click on any of the raw files inside this directory and all the other
related files will be automatically read.
There are three methods to specify the location of a floppy disk image in Aufit:
 You can use the Load Image buttons. An open file dialog box will be displayed
and you just specify the file to load. The name of the last file opened is saved
(even between Aufit sessions). This allows to use the Reload button to reload
the last loaded image.
 You can drag a floppy image file from the Windows Explorer and drop it into the
Aufit program main window.
 You can double click on an image file associated with the Aufit program. This will
start the program and load the image.
The load operation is performed in two phases:
 First the file(s) is (are) read: this is a very IO intensive operation
 Then the image is analyzed: this is a very CPU intensive operation
To maximize performance the Aufit program is multi-threaded and will use many
cores / threads when available.
 Note: To fully benefit from the Aufit stream analysis you need to sample an Atari
floppy disk with a minimum of at least three revolutions for each track but five is
the recommended value.
Please refer to the imaging tools documentation to create FD images with 5
revolutions.

Command Line Arguments (Aufit batch-mode)
The Aufit program can be invoked with command arguments, in that case the
program run in “batch-mode”. The following arguments are accepted:
 -disk: This argument requests Aufit to produce a picture of the disk layout. In
that case the optional –scale argument allow to specify a scaling factor for the
produce image.
 -scale <scale_value>: This arguments is only useful when the –disk argument
is used. The scale_value is used to scale the image produced. When scale is
not specified a default value of 1.4 is used.
 -protections: This argument is used to request Aufit to produce a text file that
lists all the protections detected.
 -save <image_type>: This argument is used to request Aufit to produce an
output image. The image type specify the type of image. Currently only stx is
supported.
 -suffix <suffix_name>: The “suffix_name” argument is used to compose the
name of the output files produced by Aufit in auto-mode (see below).
These arguments must be followed by the name of the input image file to analyze. If
this name contains spaces it must be enclosed in double quotes.
Whenever optional argument are specified in the command line (other than the image
file name) the Aufit program is automatically run in batch-mode. In this mode the
program executes the different operations requested by the arguments and then
terminates. During execution of Aufit in batch-mode it is recommended, for
performance reason, not to place the mouse cursor on top of Aufit’s window.
For example the following line:
Aufit.exe –disk_view –scale 2.0 –save stx –suffix aufit_1.0 “c:\awesome disk1.scp”
Invokes Aufit in batch-mode requesting a disk picture and a stx pasti file.
The name of the output files produced are the following:
 Disk image: base_name.disk.suffix_name.png
 Protections: base_name.protections.suffix_name.txt
 STX file: base_name.image.suffix_name.stx
The base name depends of the type of the input image.
 For a .scp files the base name is directly the input name. For example if the
input is c:\awesome\awesome_d1.scp the base name is the same.
 Kryoflux raw files are located in a directory that contains all the raw files. For
example the directory c:\awesome\awesome_d1 contains the tracks:
track00.0.raw, track00.1.raw, track01.0.raw etc. In that case the base name is
c:\awesome\awesome_d1.raw
Examples of output:
c:\awesome\awesome_d1.scp.disk.aufit_1.0.png
c:\awesome\awesome_d1.raw.disk.aufit_1.0.png
It is therefore possible to create a command file that, for example, finds the floppy
disk images in a directory tree and invoke Aufit with the right parameters.
As DOS command files are not easy to write I also provide the BatchAufit program,
with a nice GUI, that automatically invokes Aufit in batch-mode with the appropriate
parameters for processing a tree of FD images.

AUFIT User’s Manual
Selecting a specific track
Once the FD image is loaded the information for
the first track of the disk is displayed in the different
graphs. In the top left corner of the Aufit window
you find two grids (one for each side of the floppy)
that are composed of track selection buttons.
Each grid element correspond to a track and the
color of the background used gives information about the analyzed track:
 Lime green for normal tracks,
 Orange for protected tracks,
 Blue for tracks without normal sector but that have data following a 3 sync
mark sequence. This usually indicates a data track,
 Light blue for tracks with possible data detected but no sync sequence,
 Slate gray for unformatted/empty tracks,
 White indicates tracks that have not be imaged.
The currently selected track button is identified with a larger black border around the
button.
You can click on any button of the track grid (except non imaged track) to select a
specific track. Once a track grid is “active” (for example by clicking on a track
selection button) you can change selection from one track to its neighbor by using
the four direction keys (left, right, up, down) of your keyboard.
Selecting a new track will update the different views.
Selecting a specific revolution
You can select a specific revolution among the one sampled with the + and - buttons
located at the upper right corner of the program window. Selecting a specific
revolution affects the information displayed in the different graphs.
Tooltips
Almost all visual objects in Aufit have an associated tooltip. For example place your
mouse over a button or a checkbox and a short explanation about usage of this
object is provided as long as you leave the mouse over it.
For graphs you will find an image with a question mark “?” on the top left of the
graph. Place the mouse over this image and a tooltip will show up that gives
indication about the content of the graph.

The Histogram Graph
The histogram graph, located at the right of the selection grid, represents the
repartition of the flux transitions. Normally you should see three pics at 4, 6, and 8
microseconds.
It is sometimes interesting to click the “Logarithmic Scale” check box to switch to a
logarithmic scale on the Y axis. This allow to see information not visible on a linear
scale. For example with the game Dungeon Master you will see that the histogram
has a lot of entries between 4 and 6 microsecond due to the “sliding fluxes” pattern
used as a protection for this game.
The Event Log window
The Event Log tab displays information about the executed command. For example
when selecting a track it indicates the entropy, the number of fluxes, and the
histogram size (max flux value).
On top of the information mentioned above, each time you select a specific track, the
protections used for this track are displayed. The content of this window can be
cleared / saved with the corresponding buttons.

The Track View tab
Flux Transitions Chart
The unprocessed flux transitions (i.e. flux directly read from the file) are displayed as
a scattered chart. Information about the currently displayed track is displayed at the
top of this graph.
The Limit Flux check box limits the flux displayed on the Y axis to 10 µs. By default
this checkbox is checked for unformatted track and is unchecked for formatted track
but you can change its state at all time. This is very useful when the track contains
long flux transitions (like with NFA) to keep the graph readable. Both the Histogram
chart and the Flux Chart use this checkbox. Note that in limit flux mode if some
transitions above 10 µs exists (therefore located outside of the graph) they are
displayed as big black dots on the border (see highlighted dots in graph above).
A standard track contains about 40000 flux transitions and by default all the flux
transitions are displayed. To speed up the display time, for example on a slower
machine, you can uncheck the Detail check box in upper right corner, this will limit
the display to only 10000 flux transitions (about ¼ of the flux transitions).
The O/E (odd / even) check box allow to display the odd transition in blue and the
even transition in red. This can be useful to highlight unbalanced read channels.
In the upper right of this chart you have two check boxes called A1 & C2. These
check boxes are used to enable/disable the display of the A1 ($4489) and 0xC2
($5224) Sync Marks as they would be detected by the WD1772 using a Read Track
command (i.e. with the sync detector activated at all time). You need to refresh the
display to see or hide the sync marks. By default the A1 sync marks (red lines) are
displayed and the C2 sync marks (blue lines) are not displayed.
Cell Width Chart
The Cell Width chart displays the width of decoded cell as computed by the internal
WD1772 DPLL clock. The nominal cell width is 2000ns but this value can vary a lot
for over / under clocked sectors / tracks. The Y scale is automatically adjusted.
When the Avg checkbox is checked (the default) the graph displays a smoothed
running average of the bit width computed by the DPLL. When Avg is unchecked the
graph display directly the cell width unprocessed.
AUFIT 1.3 – October 21, 2015
Jean Louis-Guerin
Page 9 sur 29
AUFIT User’s Manual
The Cell Width normally stays relatively stable around the 2000ns period but for
protection like Copylock usually the values goes from 2000 to 2100 (5% increase)
inside a sector. Some protections overclock or underclock the complete track.
Data Graph
This graph displays all the sectors found on a track:
 The ID field is displayed in yellow (you need to zoom to see it),
 The Intra-gap field is displayed in light green,
 The Data field is displayed in blue.
The data field color can change from Blue to
 Aqua (lighter blue) for under clocked sector,
 Deep Sky Blue for overclocked sectors,
 Purple for sector with bit width variation (e.g. speedlock).
Data sectors with fuzzy bits have an orange border and data sectors with CRC error
have a red border.
If you place the cursor over a sector in the data graph, a tool tip shows up and
detailed information about the sector is displayed.
The Data graph information uses a complex algorithm (mixture of read track, read
address, and read sector) to display correctly “complex” tracks containing protection
like: Sector within sector, tracks with large number of sectors, tracks with one sector,
etc.
“Out of band” (OOB) flux transitions (e.g. larger than 8300 µs) usually indicates splice
bytes. It is difficult to see them in the transition graph. Therefore OOB (only if located
in the GAP area) are displayed as red lines in the data graph. If you place the cursor
over one of this red line a tool tip shows up and indicates the exact position and the
length of this out of band transition.
Zooming and Panning in the Track view
When the flux chart is not zoomed you can use the left mouse button to define a
zoom area (zoom in both in x and y directions). Click on a first point to start the
definition of the area, keep the mouse button down and move to a second point to
define a zoom area. A rubber band box is drawn that delimitates the area and when
the left button is released the graph is zoomed in the area defined. The scales
displayed on both x and y axis are automatically adjusted function of the zoom factor.
Once zoomed a click with the left button allow to pan the graph. Click any point in the
flux graph with the left button and while keeping the button down move the cursor.
The image of the graph dynamically moves with the cursor. When you release the
mouse button, the graph and the axis position are updated.
You can further zoom-in or zoom-out by using the mouse wheel.
If you want to reset the graphs to un-zoomed state click anywhere in the Flux chart
with the right mouse button (this is also the way to force a redisplay).
Note that the same zoom factor is used to update the flux chart, the clock chart,
and the data chart. Therefore these three graphs always stay synchronized.
 You must place the mouse on top of the flux chart to pan and zoom the charts.

The Disk View tab
The Disk View tab allow to display the layout of the two sides of the floppy disk.
The following colors are used:
 The ID field of a sector is in Yellow (hard to see)
 The Intra-gap of a sector is in light green
 The Data field of a sector is displayed:
 In Deep sky blue by default
 In Blue for over clocked sector
 In Aqua for under clocked segment
 In Purple for sector with bit-rate variation (e.g. speedlock)
 Data sector with CRC error and/or Fuzzy bytes are displayed in Orange
 No Flux region are displayed in Red
 Unformatted track in Gray
 Data track in Blue
 Track with “data in band” but no sync in Yellow
 Data bits outside normal range are displayed in White
It is possible to save a picture of the layout with the Save Picture button. The picture
can be saved with 3 resolutions (high, medium, low).
The Out of Band checkbox forces display of Out of Band transitions in white.
The Unformatted NFA checkbox forces to display of NFA region even in an
unformatted track.
The Magnifier checkbox allow usage of the disk magnifier. Once enabled, placing
the mouse over the disk displays a magnified picture. The mouse wheel can be used
to change the magnification factor (zoom-in or zoom-out). Using the right mouse
button reset to the default zoom factor. In order to be able to save a magnified region
it is possible to freeze it. This can be done with the mouse left button (one click
freeze, next click unfreeze). It is possible to use two independent magnifier regions
for side 0 and 1. When saving the picture the magnified region(s) are also saved.
Selecting a track highlight the track in the Disk View.

The Data View tab
The Data view allow to display information about the layout, the read track content,
and the read sectors content of the currently selected track.
The data view contains
 A MFM check box on bottom left. This check box allow to display the content of
the buffers plus an extra line that displays the content of the MFM register.
 The Save content button allow to save the content of data view in .rtf format.
This format allow to keep the formatting information (color, font etc.) and it must
be loaded with a program like Microsoft Word.
 The Layout, Track, Sectors buttons are used to display the track content as
explain below.
Layout
The Layout button allows to see the layout of the selected track. This information is
displayed in an array.

We first have information about the ID field:
 The sector number
 The start position of the ID field in microseconds
 A flag to indicate if the CRC of the ID field is good or not
 Then we have the number of bytes in the GAP located between the ID and Data
field. This number includes the post-id gap, the pre-data gap including the 3
sync marks. For more information refer to Standard 9-10-11 Sectors of 512
Bytes Format
 Then we have information about Data fields
 The Number of bytes of the sector (including DAM and CRC)
 The start position of the Data field in microseconds
 The time length of the sector in microseconds.
 A flag to indicate if the CRC of the Data field is good or not
 A flag to indicate if the Data field has fuzzy bytes
 Then we have the number of bytes in the GAP located between a sector and the
next sector. This number includes the post-data gap, the pre-id gap including the
3 sync marks. For more information refer to Standard 9-10-11 Sectors of 512
Bytes Format.

The data bytes are displayed by group of 16 with the following information:
 The first number is the position of the byte in the buffer (decimal value)
 The second number is the cell bit-width of the first byte of the line. If the width is
2.5% above normal the period is displayed in blue, if the period is 2.5% below
normal it is displayed in red.
 The third number is the starting position of the first byte of the line in
microsecond relative to the index of the track.
 The 16 bytes are displayed in hexadecimal format
 Followed by the corresponding 16 ASCII characters.
Colors and font style are used to provide additional information.
Background color:

Sectors Buffer
The sector buffer is displayed if you click the Sector button.
The sector buffer displays the content of the selected track as they would have been
read by the Read Address and Read Sector commands of the WD1772.
But it also includes information that can’t be read by the WD1772: the GAP contents.
This information is most of the time different from what is read with the read track
command because of the false sync problem of the WD1772.
The information for each sector is displayed like this

The inner gap field contains the bytes in the gap field located between the ID field
and the data field. Aufit continue to read the bytes directly following the end of the ID
field without resynchronization. These bytes normally correspond to what has been
written on the track and are usually different from what would have been read by the
read track command because of the 0x5224 resynchronization that happen during
this command.
The start position of the GAP field relative to the index pulse and the length of the
GAP field are provided expressed in bits, bytes, and time.
This is followed by the content of the GAP buffer. The bytes are displayed by group
of 16 with the following information:
 The first number is the position of the byte in the track (decimal value)
 The second number is the half bit cell width of the first byte of the line. If the
period is 2.5% above normal the period is displayed in blue, if the period is 2.5%
below normal it is displayed in red.
 The third number is the position of the first byte of the line in microsecond
relative to the index of the track.
 16 bytes are displayed in hexadecimal
 The corresponding 16 ASCII characters for the 16 bytes.

To find fuzzy bytes the Aufit program read the same sector multiple times from
different revolutions. If the content of a byte in the same position is different the mask
value is the result of a xor operation. The mask array combines the fuzzy bytes found
on all revolutions.
Mask[offset] = (Sector_read_1[offset] ^ Sector_read_2[offset])
Thus same value (1&1 or 0&0) gives a result of zero and different value (0&1 or 1&0)
gives a result of one. For example if the same byte is read one time as 0000 1111
and the next time as 0101 0101 the mask will be 0101 1010.
This mask can then be used to emulate fuzzy bits as follow:
FuzzyByte[offset] = (Sector[offset] & Mask[offset]) | (rand() & Mask[offset])
Where rand() is a function that randomly returns true or false.
If the fuzzy bytes are all of type Dungeon Master (i.e. the transitions are located in
uncertain areas), an indication is provided.
73 fuzzy bytes of type Dungeon Master / Chaos Strike Back found

The post data gap field contains the bytes in the gap located after the data field. Aufit
continue to read the bytes directly following the end of the DATA field without
resynchronization. These bytes normally correspond to what has been written on the
track and are usually different from what would have been read by the read track
command because of the 0x5224 resynchronization that happen during this
command.
The start position of the GAP field relative to the index pulse and the length of the
GAP field are provided expressed in bits, bytes, and time.
This is followed by the content of the GAP buffer.
Saving Data View content
For any of the data view buffer (Layout / Track / Sectors) it is possible to save the
buffer in RTF format using the Save button.
The RTF format allow to keep all formatting information for example the font weight,
the color, etc.
You can use a RTF reader like Microsoft Word to load the RTF format and save it for
example in PDF.

The Master View tab
The Master view displays floppy disk mastering information.
 Not yet implemented – Do not use
The mastering information contains the disk data, how it is stored (and hence how to
write it back), and also other things needed to store copy protection (like how dense
the data is at any part of each track). It is interesting to note that this information does
not contain directly detailed information often found in other preservation formats. For
example the timing information measured by an image preservation tool is not stored
but the “format description” can for example indicate that specific sectors of a track
uses a well-known bit-cell density variation. The result is therefore perfect as the
timings are not subject to measurement errors.
The mastering information can be saved in IPF format and this allow to use the
KryoFlux mastering system to write a perfect diskette even if the input image
generated by a KryoFlux or SuperCard Pro board has lots of imperfections.
To generate the mastering information Aufit performs an automatic recognition of
known disk-formats. Finding the original mastering description can be compared to
breaking a vault combination lock: it is a very hard process but once done you know
that you have a perfect result.

The Save Image tab
When you select this tab you are presented with information about the possible
format you can use to save the current image.
Currently three families of formats exist:
 The non-protected byte formats includes: ST, MSA, DIM
 The protected byte format: STX, IPF
 The bit stream format: RAW
 Aufit includes an auto-recovery feature. When you write the content of a floppy disk
that contains sector’s errors the program will try to recover the information about this
sector from another revolution.
You first have to select the output format you want to use from a combo box on the
left. If it is not possible to use a specific format with the current data (for example ST
format for floppy disk using protection) it will be grayed.
When you click the Write Image button a form open and ask you the location and the
name of the file to write. If the file already exist a window will pop up and ask you if
you want to replace the existing file.
As soon as you close this form the output file is written and some information is
displayed in the main window including error recovered and potential problems.
 Reminder: In order to produce a correct file you must use images with data for at
least three revolutions but a value of five is recommended especially for floppies in
bad condition.
If not enough data (revolutions) have been imaged a window will pop up and warn
you. You are still offer the capability to force writing the file.
Normally single sided / double sided detection is performed automatically by Aufit. If
you are getting error messages in Steem that an image of a track is missing on side 1
of the floppy image you may need to force Aufit to write file for double sided disk. For
that matter please check the Force DS check Box.
When the Optimize check box is checked (the default) Aufit will write “compressed”
file (smaller file size) for the STX and MSA format.
The Debug and WriteSync check boxes are for debug purpose and normally you do
not have to use them.
The raw stream format
You can now write the KF Raw format. This is only useful if you want to convert a
stream file from SCP to RAW. In that case Aufit creates a directory named by
concatenating .scp file name with .conv. For example if the input is warrior_d.scp
the output directory will be warrior_d.scp.conv. This directory will contains many
.raw files (one per track).
If the directory that contains the Aufit.exe executable also contain the Kryoflux
dtc.exe executable, Aufit will automatically call the dtc.exe program with the right
parameters to produce a CTR file from the created raw files. The name of the crt file
is the name of the scp file with .conv.ctr appended. For example
warrior_d.scp.conv.ctr

BatchAufit Program
As mentioned in the Command Line Arguments (Aufit batch-mode) section it is
possible to run the Aufit program in batch mode to automatically produce specific
outputs without user intervention.
 Always use the BatchAufit program that matches the Aufit program as from time to
time the command line argument are changed.
The BatchAufit program allows to automatically detect all FD images located inside a
directory tree and to invoke the Aufit program in auto-mode for all the detected
images not yet processed.
The GUI is composed of three area
The top area contains a button that allow to specify the root directory of the tree
where you want to search for Kryoflux and SCP FD images.
When the Root Directory button is clicked a dialog box opens to specify the location
of the root directory tree. Once specified the name of the root directory is displayed in
a text box on the right of the Reload button. The Reload button forces to re-read the
last specified tree location. This information is saved between sessions and therefore
it is possible to continue the processing of images in separate sessions.
The top area also contains a Save Log button that allows to save the content of the
display area. This allow to save for example the result of analysis of a tree or the
result of running Aufit in batch mode.

displayed in the middle area.
An indication of the Total number of FD images as well as an indication on the
number of already analyzed images is displayed. In the above example we can see
that 708 images have been detected and that 130 of them have already been
processed.
In the bottom area you will find several checkboxes that allow to specify if you want
Aufit to create Disk picture, Protections text, and Save image in a specific format.
This is followed by three text boxes that allow to specify the suffix to be used when
creating the output files, the scale to be used when creating disk view files, and the
max time BatchAufit waits for Aufit to complete before processing next image (a
default value of -1 means wait un-definitively).
At the bottom of the GUI are four buttons:
 The Start button allows to start the batch execution of Aufit. A progress bar
indicates the percentage of images already processed.
 The Stop button allow to stop the execution of the batch process. BatchAufit
waits for the execution of Aufit on the current image to terminate then stops. As
the program detects what images has already been processed it is possible to
stop the batch processing and to restart later the execution where it was stopped
(even in different run of BatchAufit).
 The Clean All button removes all the output files created by running Aufit in
batch mode. You should use this command with care!
 The Exit button terminates the program
Sometimes you may want to ignore specific subtrees inside the directory tree to
analyze. In that case you can place a file called aufit.ignore.txt to indicate that you
do not want the current directory and all its subdirectories to be analyzed.

Checking Quality of generated images
This section discuss several questions around the quality of Floppy Disk images
created with devices like KryoFlux or SuperCard Pro.
To some extent the quality of the image is only related to the floppy drives and floppy
disks conditions and therefore independent of the imaging device used.
Cleaning
The first thing you want to do before imaging floppy disks is to clean the floppy drive
head and a make sure you have spotlessly clean floppy disk.
 Cleaning the floppy drive head and cleaning the diskette can make a big difference
First always clean the floppy drive head using dedicated cleaning kits as this is a very
easy to do operation.
Cleaning a floppy disk is a much more painful operation and therefore you can try to
image the diskette without cleaning. If during analysis, as explained below, you find
problems on the disk image you should clean the floppy diskette. The recommended
way is to wipe the surface of the floppy diskette using a Q-Tip impregnated with head
cleaning liquid. Normally this liquid evaporate quickly but you can use the other side
of the Q-Tip to help dry the liquid in excess. There are numerous site and videos on
the net that explain in detail these operations.
Important things to know when cleaning a floppy diskette:
 The side with an etiquette is the “second logical side” (side/head 1) of the
diskette
 The side with the hub that engages with the drive motor is the “first logical side”
(side/head 0) of the diskette.
So if you find problems on side/head 0 you need to clean the side without the
etiquette (what I refer as the back side) and if you find problems with side/head 1 you
need to clean the side with the etiquette (what I refer as the front side).
Analyzing Images
Now let’s move on the heart of the subject:
 How do I find if the image I have done is of good enough quality?
For that matter we use the Aufit program.
You first need to read the image you have created as explain in Reading Image Files
section.
When the program read the image it already display useful information in the Track
grids as the background color of each track is an indication of possible problem:
 A “normal” track has a light green background,
 an unformatted track has a light gray, and
 a track with potential problem is displayed in yellow.
At this stage only a quick Shannon Entropy analysis is done on the flux transitions
histogram and a yellow color usually indicates track with partially unformatted areas
or incorrectly imaged track but always require a more complete analysis.

For examples here is the result of reading an image of Sherman M4.
We can see that we have several tracks with a yellow background. If we click on
some of these tracks we will find that in fact they are corrects.
But if we click on track 66 we can see than sector one has a lot of “dirty” flux
transitions. Thanks to the DPLL these variations can be corrected and we are able to
read the sector correctly. This is indicated by the fact that all the sectors read without
CRC error.
But if we select the track 73 and zoom on the first sector area we can see that we
also have dirty flux transitions, but here the DPLL is not capable to decode the
information correctly.
In this case we can see that the first sector is read with fuzzy bytes (orange box in
data chart and indication in the information window). In fact if we further analyze the
problem we can find, in the fuzzy mask buffer that only two bytes at position 206 and
214 vary between
revolutions! This also
why it is recommended
to sample at least four
revolutions as Aufit
always checks fuzzy
bytes by comparing the
data read for all
available revolutions.
In this case it seems obvious that is error is not part of a protection but due to a
problem on the floppy diskette. In such case you should try to clean the diskette and
image it again.

We can even look further at the problem. If we click the Sectors Buffer command we
can see that on some of the revolutions the CRC is good and on some other
revolutions the CRC is bad. Normally a fuzzy byte always result in a CRC error.
Therefore this indicates that on some revolutions we have read the correct
information. Currently Aufit is not able to use this information to create a working Past
file but I may implement this feature in the future.
 You need to be aware that on an Atari system when reading sectors from a diskette
an automatic retry is performed anytime a sector is not read correctly. This retry is
transparent to the user and is used more often than you think.
 Therefore when you have problem clean the floppy and recreate new image, and if
this still fails try to recreate the image several times. If the floppy is only marginally
not read this may allow you to create a good image.
In order to find all possible problems you first need to run the Protection command
and for each “protected track” (displayed with a red background in the track grid) you
need to check if the problem comes from known protection or from “dirty flux
transitions”. Unfortunately it seems very difficult to find out about bad images
automatically and this is why you need to do a visual inspection using the different
features of the Aufit program.
