I have a floppy disk with pictures for my job on it. I have used this disk before, on the same computer, and it worked fine. Now, all of the sudden, it is telling me I need to format the disk. I don't want the files on the disk to be erased, so I don't want to format it. Are there any suggestions as to how I could access the files that are currently on the disk?
A few notes:
The disk is a normal, 3 1/2" floppy, maxell 2HD.
When I try to access the disk using the command prompt it reads "Data error (cyclic redundancy check)."
It could easily be the computer itself that's the problem.
I could access another disk of the same brand that I had used for photographs before.
Thanks to everyone here
