Hello David,
many Thanks for your help!

I'm very interested in the internal Profile materials- how can I get it from you ?
By the way: Is it ok to copy the LLF EPROMs for everyone who needs it to repair his Profile hard disk?
I think that Apple's copyrights for the Profile (and Widget?) ended in 1998- there shouldn't be any legal problems- do you know more about this problem?

No, this is not true: You need a modified Lisa with an Apple internal LLF utility to perform a Low Level Format.
I know an Apple technician who has repaired my widget and performed a LLF. He won't give away his knowledge or the utility software.

Thanks in advance,

Helmut Post

P.S.: Do you know my friend Patrick SchŠfer ? He has built an IDEFile emulator for the Lisa (and Apple III)
