Clean will then prompt:
NUMBER OF TRACKS TO STEP?
Enter the maximum number of tracks for the drive to be cleaned as found in the manufactuers literature. Though less than the maximum number of tracks may be specified, it is recommended that only the maximum number be used. This is to insure uniform head cleaning and uniform wear on the head cleaning diskette. Entering an illegal number or zero will cause a return to FLEX. The next prompt is:
NUMBER OF DRIVE TO BE CLEANED?
Enter the drive number for the drive to be cleaned. Entering an illegal number or an escape will cause a return to FLEX. The last prompt is:

At this point, follow the instructions that accompany the cleaning diskette. Insert the cleaning diskette in the specified drive and close the door. Then type a carriage return on the keyboard to start the cleaning process. Typing an escape will cause a return to FLEX. Typing any other character will cause the prompt to be re-printed. When finished CLEAN will print:

NOTE: Failure to follow the manufacturer's instructions can cause damage to the disk drive and/or the cleaning diskette.
