I fired up my 7200 the other day. I wanted to try to recover an old floppy
from a client who claimed it had some Illustrator artwork on it. The disk
had the 'HD' (CH) logo but I couldn't read it in either of two HD Mac drives
of that era.
What floppy disk recovery / probing tools might I use to see
if I can recover the artwork?
My old IIci wouldn't boot when I took it from storage, with or
without its PPC add-on card. I even tried booting it with the 7200's
drive. Just a question-mark disk icon.
A few weeks before, I'd tried to read an old Amiga drive from the same era.
No go. Both drives were old Quantum 80s. Are these known to decay in
a certain way?
