First, in the new version of win95 back up (available to www.microsoft.com)
it allows you to select which files to restore or back up, just like win3.x did (options section),
 I'd try that, just remember, the corrupted section will probably never be recovered

I'd also as a last resort, try scandisk on the floppy, or checkdisk /f at a dos prompt, both of these run the risk of further damaging the corrupted sector as they try to move the info, or restore the files respectfully.
