Question Data Recovery From Floppy

We got some 12 year student who spent the last 7 weeks working on a magor assignment.

He was moving the files from Floppy over to Hard drive when a power failure happened.

Long story short, does any one know of any programs that call try to recover lost data from floppy disks?

The program work in recover the TEXT in MS Word Doc, but all the picture and diagrams are gone.

I guess this will do for now, however if you have any other suggestions, i am all ears.

Silesia, recovery from a floppy will be quite more difficult compared to a HDD.... those pics and diagrams... i think you can kiss those goodbye unfortunately.

All the text in the document was recovered.
The only thing that was missing was the pictures, which she had on the hard drive.
