OK, so this aint a computer help message board, but I figured that there are so many intelligent talented people on this board I will get a quick and accurate responses [/gratutious ass-kissing]
Got a problem. Friend of mine has a floppy disk in which a computer science assignment resides, and it seems to be hosed. What’s worse is that she has no backup (spare the sermon, she already got one). Even worse, when I try to bring it up, the drive seems to skip, as if the disk itself is unreadable. There are multiple files on this disk, this file is the only file that will not load.
I have pulled a word recovery demo off of the net (Wordfix), but it can’t get past the the problem of getting file to load. Is there any decent way to try to get data off of disk (besides sending it to some lab that will charge me an arm and a leg), or is she screwed? Can anyone point me at a really good file recovery program that might help? She indicates she got a PC to load the file after numerous tries at PC lab, but we were unable to get anything at my place, using two different PCs.
Friend says if this file is hosed, she’s dumping the class. Help me save a bright young student’s academic future!
