Default calling all techs...

i'm going to start off by asking for a specific utility... i need to check the integrity of a floppy disk... i know, but some people still insist on staying in the 80's you should see the haircuts... j/k

if anyone has a utility that can do this please let me know... otherwise any great
(HARD TO FIND)
utilities you may have that you might like to share? there are very comprehensive lists of diag utils... i'm looking for the specific or hard to find or just plain outdated that you may still have in your toolbag.

thanks,
Ken

i have been with very minimal results... i have however found millions of hard disk integrity tools that fit on a floppy. and one that would work, but only on a RedHat distro. i'm still googling it!
thanks
anybody else got some input?

Badcopy Pro can recover data from floppydisks. But that's not exactly what you are looking for, right?
