Afaik you get an image back from them if you send the raw file. There is an Amiga application that does it without a kryofloux. I have a kryoflux but there should be others in this forum as well I would assume.

I have been looking like mad for my backup copy that I made of a friends years ago but so far haven't found it. It is probably on an unlabeled disk some place.
While I do appreciate the efforts of the SPA, you would need a flux imager, KryoFlux or SuperCard Pro to provide an image to them. Also, unlike archive.org, they do not share the images or preservation with anyone which makes it kind of pointless, IMHO. What happens if their building burns down and the preserved images go up in smoke? Of course, I realize they probably have off site backups, the whole point of preserving something like software is so future generations can enjoy it and experience history. With Archive.org all can enjoy the archived software and so far most companies have been supportive or at the very least tolerant of the archive. Sorry I realize that was a bit OT.McTrinsic wrote:Really, please consider helping the CAPS project, see
