Diskette Recovery

Because of the thin media of floppy/Zip disks (Diskette), such as Zip Disks, Bernoulli Box, Syquest, Jaz Drives, Floppy Disks, and Compact Disks, they are more susceptible to physical damage, magnetic media failure and contamination failure than hard disks, and are all subject to the same risks and potential for data loss. Your Disk may produce error messages along the lines of:

"File not found"

"disk not formatted"
Invalid sector
Disk I/O error

Invalid or corrupt partition
Corrupt FAT
Clicking, or "click of death" .
Enter database password (when none was set)
