How to make a Floppy Disk Image?

Hello!  Everyone
I have been using many old programs and as far as they work fine, I use them.   To secure the safety of these old magnetic floppy programs, I want to make a set of Floppy Disk Images in case of any damage on any diskette, then I can quickly recover it.   I searched Windows System, Iomega's Tool (old one), and BackupNow3!+DriveBackup3! by NewTech Inforsystems, but none of them didn't hint me the right option.   I am guessing there are many of shareware to do this simple job.   Please suggest me your experience!   Thank you.

I tried this time 'Undisker', and it is so easy to use.   It tells any sector damage during image recording, so that I can see which disk should not be used.   Thank you all.

May be a coincidence.. But I went to the udisker link shown aboive to test their software. Started install and my AV starting alerting and something tried to read my floppy drive.. and my Microsoft Security Essentials scanner went crazy.
