Unable to read floppy problem

  THOMAS 20:38 20 Feb 05

Hi i have a powerpoint presentation saved onto a floppy disc.When i try to access the floppy windows insists on telling me that the disk is unformatted and i can not access the presentation,i have tried it on a couple of PC's with the same result.
Is there a way of recovering the data or accessing the disk without further damage.

Open Powerpoint first and access the floppy from there and it'll probably open ok.

I've learnt from bitter experience not to rely on anything on a floppy.

Hindsight demands a minimum of two disks for info, more if it's the only copy.
