Floppy Disk Errors

Maybe not original, but I found a neat way of fooling Scandisk to check and fix a damaged floppy.

We have all come across the 'boot sector' errors where the disk cannot be read.

When this happened I put in a workable disk and waited for the prompt for a surface scan, at this point I swapped the disks.

Many times the disk was scanned and repaired. Always worth a try.

Could work with re-writable dvds etc?

Long live CD's, memory sticks etc. :0)
