Unfortunately I haven't found them :( I haven't actually checked any code at all, but what I remember from "the past" is that DOS is probably doing something like a multi-level cache of BAM track entries. And when it caches a single track entry in TBAM, it sets the location where it is copied from to "safe values", i.e. all sectors occupied, so that in the case of a mistake, it would be impossible for sectors to get double-allocated. -Olaf. -- ___ Olaf 'Rhialto' Seibert -- You author it, and I'll reader it. \X/ rhialto/at/xs4all.nl -- Cetero censeo "authored" delendum esse.
