    Elizabeth23,

    Thanks for the link!

    Have been checking the ~363K results but to date have not found "software that will check floppies for bad sectors and repair if possible and write zeros"

    Seems something gets lost when no "..." like result "What are some free utilities for securely wiping data from a floppy disk" https://serverfault.com/questions/1...s-for-securely-wiping-data-from-a-floppy-disk

    Hoped someone was still using Floppies and would have some recommendations.
