not sure if anyone mentioned this point yet, but I have found that the
drives destroy good disks a sizable percentage of the time.  Keeping the
heads clean and testing a drive before use with an important vintage disk
is key to the longevity of the disk.  I also always make a backup copy of
most every disk I use, and leave the original in a safe temp-consistent
