I mean regular 5.25" head cleaner disks. I don't particularly think 
they're optimal for cleaning the head load pads (fiber pads) of single 
headed drives (let alone the extra friction generated in the process). I 
won't use such cleaner disks in my single sided drives unless (say) the 
upper side of the disk envelope can be masked somehow.

Best regards,
