Atari STart Magazine Cover Disks
STart magazine ran from Summer of 1986 to April/May 1991. It usually used single-sided disks, but in November of 1989 they switched to a double-sided format but using a special bootsector that made them look like single-sided disks.
The last issue using the format was April 1990 (Vol 4, No 9) as explained in another Editorial Note
But the end result is that these disks are double-sided, but disk imaging software may mistake them for single-sided. This happened when all the STart disks were imaged, so existing collections of the disks are actually missing half the content.
I'm trying to organize locating and re-imaging these affected disks.
