- One part of a floppy disk damage and directory can be listed , but there are a certain number of a file or several files can not be readed or damaged or read the paper after the, the general error message is “Sector not found error Reading drive A Abort, Retry, Ignore?” or “Data error Reading drive A Abort, Retry, Ignore?”
- Physical damage, to restore floppy disk data needs the help of some disk data recovery software.
Below is the introduction of the disk data recovery software – Floppy Zip Disk Rescue:
Floppy Zip Disk Rescue is a usefulfloppy data recovery to rescue corrupt file from Floppy disk or other peripheral devices, you can run it on Microsoft Windows.
with the recovery software, you need to first identify the needs to copy file (multiple files) or copy the entire folder (including sub-folders), the program has the two options of “Add Files” and “Add Folder” for you. select the files or folder which you want to recover, and set the directory where you like to store in your computer, then click “Start” button, the floppy Zip disk recovery will fast scans disk sectors, rescues the damaged files and copies the correct data to hard disk as possible as it can.

Floppy Zip Disk Rescue is also an easy-to-useZIP data recovery to restoredamagedfiles from ZIP disk.
The definition for Data Recovery Software:
Rapid development of IT industry leads to a new emerging mode: data recovery. Data recovery is actually just around us for decades, unnoticed. Nowadays, it emerges a new branch of IT industry. Data Recovery includes Data Recovery software and Data Recovery service.
With rapid development of global informationized, data becomes one of very important assets for organizations. Storage, safety and integrity of data is not just technology issues, but demonstration of ability to survival and competitiveness. They are same for governments, organizations, or even individuals.
Data hereinafter refers to information stored in computer and removable media. Firstly, Data is general concept, not only includes PC files, or various data stored in computer, for instance, multimedia files, like graphic, images, and audio, softwares and documents, database, or just about anything that can be taken by digital cameras, digital recorders, but also the hardware managed or stored those information. Although “data” and “information” appear in many documents, not any definition of “data” and “information” is public accepted. We simply understand them as various files in hard drives and storage media.
Simply said, Data Recovery software is an application which can successfully recover formatted or corrupted data due to virus attacks and accidents. It not only recovers the data from the files, phsically damaged drive, operating systems, but also digital removable memory sticks.
The range of Data Recovery includes: Soft troubles and Hard troubles.

(3) recover passwords of operating system (example: Windows 2000/Xp) and files of zip, rar, Word, Excel, Access and PDF.
1. Symptoms of hard troubles:
- Do not recognize CMOS
- “Ka Ka” sound of magnetic head collision
- Motor doesnt work, and no sound after power on.
- Read/write errors due to magnetic head dislocation
2. Sort of hard disk or hardware troubles:
- Disc body have been corrupted due to magnetic head burnout, aging, chip corruption, disc corruption magnetic head shift, disc scratch, magnetic group deformation, servo information loss.
- PCB troubles due to PCB corruption, chipset burnout, disconnection or dis-pins.
