Best Software to Copy Old Floppies?

  KenithO 16:53 28 Nov 2015


Have an old 3½-inch (90 mm) Floppy that would like to copy the animated GIF to a new hard drive.

Since I only have 1 copy (Floppy) am trying to find out what is the best app to copy this Floppy.

Worse case is if part of the Floppy is unreadable. Hope there is an app that will copy the readable part.

Appreciate any tips/suggestions

It will copy with Explorer

Assuming that you have a suitable Drive to put the disk in. You should be able to copy the .gif and paste it onto your Desktop

No extra software should be needed
