AFAIK bwa is a subset of MDS. MDS it's more accurate than BWA. If you want proofs, please test yourself, that's the best proof
Well then I would have to go with this, the BWA is better for me, at least I can make a working copy (not 1:1) but working non the less with blindwrite, and it's BWA, can I do it with Alcohol? No alcohol will only emulate.
You always say the MDS is better, and you always say try it yourself, how about you prove it with fact and details, thats not to much to ask, just back-up your statement.
I believe and someone will corect me if I'm wrong, that twin peaks started all this ( i know here goes this argument) then clone cd with twinpeaks was the first to make a working back-up then blindwrite incorporated something similar to or just like twinpeaks with their BWA and then Alcohol jumped on board using both methods but not their own when 4.8 came out. Then alcohol developers decided emulation was the only way to go, no alternative with them.
With your setup it is possible for you to make a working back-up (not 1:1) but a working one, with blindwrite tools only, makeing a working back-up using alcohol tools only, won't happen, not without RPMS.
