The best error message I received in AugustÂ was “No ID address mark was found on the floppy disk.”
Not a very nice error when your client has some critical work on a floppy disk. In fact, a very bad error when most online search results indicate that there were no easy ways of recovering the data. As always, these are the worst times to bring up discussions such as the use of the floppy disk or saving critical work in only one location.
Anyways, the only way I was able to recover the data was by using BadCopyPro – an excellent utility recommended by Mike Y. and created by Jufsoft.
