    Oh f*ck.

    I just stuck my really long essay on a floppy; it copied from one pc allright; and then I formatted the *******.

    Now on my machine; it will not open the files; or copy from floppy.

    Any means of getting this information of the floppy disk?

    I really need this stuff; It is is due monday; and I had so much work on it...yes.. I know I do back up; just this was supposed to be a 1 minute file move...AHHHHHH!

    Ooopsie! Never store ANYTHING on a floppy only! So it can't read any floppy or just this one? Have you tried another computer?

    Looks like you are in deep <brown stuff> mate. See if you can extract some of the text anyway. Better than redoing the whole thing.

    Also, doing a reformat a few days before deadline. Not a good idea. ;)

    :) I thought so too.

    Thanks for the help Zedric.

    That's what I thought; I'm screwed.
