Anyone have success making backup of Avalon Hill games?

I was finally able to get a a working version of Avalon Hill's Tournament Golf. The game works great.  I have not played this game in 30 years. I am trying to make a backup copy with Copy II+ 9.1  on my Apple IIgs and am having no luck. I have tried the 5.25 BIT copy with the Auto Copy selection and TRY AVALON HILL, TRY STANDARD, TRY  STANDARD (ALT. 1), TRY SUNBURST, TRY SYNC, TRY SYNC (ALT. 1)  and all have failed to make a scuccessful copy. Has anyone had any success making a backup copy of any Avalon Hill games?

Have you tried "cracking" it

Have you tried "cracking" it with Passport?

Thanks! I have not heard of this backup utility. I am going to give it try.

It worked..I now have a backup

The Passport crack utility worked great. I had to format the target disk (DOS 3.3) prior to running the crack utility, but it worked. I now can play my Tournament Golf game without the fear of having the disk fail. Thanks!
