Abstract

Disclosed is a technique which allows for a file to be rewritten with one pass of a magneto-optic recording head. Each time a file is rewritten the magnetic field is held constant and the field orientation is stored in the file directory. This technique is compatible with the current commercial magneto-optic head and disk technology.
