hi, my grandaughter has saved her homework on a floppy disk, now she can not get into it, i have brought it home with me to try, but all i get is "this disk is not formatted" is all lost?

I'd personally be inclined to use a file recovery programme such as this excellent free utility click here

The first thing that I'd do is to make a copy even though there maybe nothing on it. That way, if you do have data on it, at least it will be a 'safe' copy.
Wait for a few more replies before venturing further and, just a thought, have a look in the forums output on the subject by 'searching'. Another thought, perhaps there's a free programme residing in PDa's Download section.
