I am a computer novice but my boss asked me to try to open a floppy on which his wife was saving an important patient case history. I presume she was using MS Word. It wouldn't open and disk error checking didn't work.
Opening the A drive from "My Computer" produced a message which said something like "cyclic redundancy error".
Is there any software readily available (freeware preferably) to recover the data or is the Word file corrupted and impossible to recover? I hope someone can help even if it is to confirm that it can't be fixed.
