Hi, this might help - notice on right of page in blue print - Data Recovery Floppy Disk - or similar, can't remember exact wording.

Floppies seem to have a rather short life. When they were invented they were the 'best thing since sliced bread'. But by modern standards they are 'short lived'.

Hopefully someone will post a link to some form of free download that can try and read off the data. But I suspect it is gone for good.

I have successfully used this to retrieve files of a formatted floppy disk.

Hi english113

This seems to work for some people,

use another OS ie. win 98/ME to open the disk and save the files on the PC. Format another disk with xp then save the files to the new XP formatted disk. Apparently xp can have a problem reading some older disks which haven't been formatted using xp.
