Floppy Disk Data Recovery

  penholder 22:20 05 Apr 2005

Floppy disks with data are being reported as
A:/not accessible even though data is on disk.
Anyone know of good software to recover data?

Can you try them in another system first, as it may be a drive fault, rather than a particular disk.

If you still can't see them after what Diesse suggests, I've used this program at work before: click here

PcInspector, very thorough software, used it myself on a few occasions, and easy to use.

I've used this succesfully to get files of a reformatted floppy.

Thank for your responses. I've tried the disk in other machines but the same thing happens. I've told it is a problem with XP.
Will try software recommendations
