    I have been using the same floppy to take files to and from home. All of a sudden when I put the floppy into the A drive it says that the disk is unformatted.

    Are my files on the disk lost? Does anyone know a way to "retrieve" them.

    Your input is appreciated

    it depends on how to took it from home to work. Putting in your pocket would certainly do that. Also is the message on any computer?
