Photo recovery from floppy

  Taw® 15:45 05 Jan 2005

I have two photos on floppy disk, I was able to open one but on trying the second the disk reads for ages and then a box appears disk may be damaged. Is there any way of attempting to recover these files without going to any expense. Sometimes it will open as a preview.

Hi, have you tried putting the pics into My Pictures?

Try on an other pc system/or friends,which if they did open without problems,may be copyied from drive to new floppy for showing on your system.

many thanks hssutton and Belatucadrus managed to getthe file recovered, though it will only show as a preview in thumbnail. If you go to open it wont open. But, I ran scan disk and repair on the floppy and was able to copy the file onto my c drive so have managed to retrieve the pic. Nice little tool that pcinspector and anyone else with recovery probs give it a go. Will tick after this
