corrupt disc

Help! Have saved word doc on floppy for tomorrow but when I try to access it it says data is corrupted.
Is there any easy way of getting to my work?

Do you mean you can't access the floppy disk or the file?

Duff floppy: - You can run scandisk on floppies and let it automatically fix errors, not sure how good it is.

Duff file: - Copy it to your HDD, rename it to duff.duf use Word to open it and it should give you a box of options as to how you want it opened including "recover text from file"


Rename the file to duff.txt and use notepad or wordpad to open it.
