Corrupt Floppy Disk Recovery

Hi,

Does anyone know where I can get a decent (preferably free) recovery tool to recover files (Word, etc.) from a corrupt floppy disk.

Thanks

Ciaran

The best is getdataback

The problem is that the corrupt data is probably "broken" enough that a usefull recovery just isn't possible. What you can try is to recover the data using different floppy drives.

What you probably need more than a tool to recover files from a floppy disk, is a tool to repair specific office files. For that there is a link below:

I used PC Inspector File recovery which worked really well only lost a very small percentage of data. I'll split the points as I'm sure they both work.

Thanks

Sorry, I couldn't split them so I gave the points to the first reply. Thanks for the help.
