  Hi Dave,

I *was* looking for OnTrack Disk Manager.
The manufacturer specific versions only work when they detect a drive
of their own brand, otherwise the software simply stops. I found on
the Internet the OnTrack version for IBM, Fujitsu, MicroScience and
Western Digital. The drive I tried to "manage" is from HP ...

I received from Pete an OnTrack version (original) which works with
*all* disks ... I won the auction on eBay so in a few days/weeks I'll
have the original documentation/manual too. I can scan the manual if
anybody is interested. The version from eBay is 7.0? Contact off-list
if anybody is interested (gooiAToceDOTnl).

I appreciate your work, Dave, but the disk already runs perfectly.

  thanks anyway,

- Henk, PA8PDP.
