Hi All, I've through the 1581 manual about partitions, but I have a few questions which aren't answered in the manual: 1) does the requested block of T&S reserved have to be continuous - I think its implied in that a new partition needs formatting, but.... 2) where in the directory entry is detail for "start" and "end" track for the partition stored 3) are files stored only in the partition space allocated between "start" and "end", or can the whole disk be used. The disks I've looked at seem to show blocks free for the whole disk (though all blocks for the partition are relected in size of the CBM file) Would save some experimentation if the answers were already known...
