Floppy Disk Conversion and 3 1/2 Disc Copy & Transfer Fees
To print out the Floppy Disc submission 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 001.zip for disk 001, 002.zip ..., 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
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
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.
