5.25" Disk Copy, Conversion, and Transfer Service

Turn those old floppies into usable data!

Still have valuable data files on old 5.25 Inch floppies (MS-DOS formatted) or the more recent 3 1/2 inch discs laying around and want to 'rescue' and archive their content or transfer the data to other media but don't have the equipment to read them?

Just send your old DOS formatted floppies, we will read the data off them and send it back to you packed into individual ZIP archives or on CD at your request.

Send your floppies, the Data Submission Form, and the correct fee to the address listed on the form.

Please number and mark your 5.25" floppy disks 001, 002, 003, ... and make / keep (for your own use) an inventory list of your disks, so that you know the content of disk 001, 002, ... etc.

Be sure you include your valid email address. Your data is copied to zip archives and emailed to the address you provide.

We will read your disks and pack their content into a ZIP archive, one ZIP file for each disk, named for disk 001, ..., etc. The disk's DOS directory structure will be preserved.

If you supply a password with your order, it will be used to encrypt the ZIP archive. 

The ZIP archive files will be sent to you via e-Mail, one mail per ZIP file, sent as an attachment.

After sending the ZIP emails to you, your original disks and copies of the mails will be held on our servers for 7 days, in case something went wrong with the process and you want us to check again. On the 8th day after sending out the ZIP archive emails, all copies of the sent ZIP emails will be deleted and we will destroy your floppy disks magnetically and then mechanically by cutting them into small pieces.

If you would like your original floppies returned to you instead of being destroyed, please enclose an additional shipping fee as listed on the submission form.

If you want us to put your ZIP files on a CD instead of emailing them, please note this in the appropriate place on your submission form.

Your media and data is strictly confidential. We do not keep any copies of your data files.

Please be aware that your floppy discs are very old now and that we therefore cannot guarantee that your old disks will be technically readable at all. In case that some of your floppy disks are technically unreadable, we will send you an letter about this fact. ("Unable to read and recover the content of disk 001"). Because we will try hard on every disk, no handling fees can be refunded.

We can read both 360 kB and 1.2 MB floppies. If they are not DOS formatted but have other formats (CP/M), we offer to investigate, how a specific format can be read.

Please note that this Disk Copy Service is for standard format "PC" or "IBM" formats, 256 byte sector disks. Other floppy disks including Commodore, TRS, Televideo, etc. should be submitted using the standard Data Recovery Submission Form. If these formats are submitted for Standard Disk Copy Service, we will make an attempt to read them, yet cannot guarantee the results.
