I've been using floppy drives (mostly 1541-II) since 1991 but can't recall 
ever have been bitten by the @ bug. Rather than using Google to find out 
exactly in which causes it hits, can someone summarize in one or two 
sentences? Is it about the case when the floppy disk is almost full? I seem 
to recall the @ works by saving the file under a temporary name, then 
deleting the original file and renaming the temporary into the original 
name. If so, I can imagine if there is not enough room for the temporary 
copy, it might result in a splat file and the original one deleted.

Best regards
