From a floppy disk that has been used how do I read what is on disk?

Also, how do I delete info on disk so it can be used again?

That's it. No more questions, period.

We are closing out 2015. As soon as that is done we will do as suggested. Thanks for your quick response. I note you have been a member since 1969. I just joined. My wife and I are old folks but still in business with our antiquated computer and software.

What kind of computer is this being used on? Dos? Windows? Apple?
Is it 5 1/4 floppy or 3.5 inch perhaps?

how do I delete info on disk
You may already have your info - I'm just clarifying that floppies in general have a write protect tab which inhibits deleting files and formatting the floppy disk. Different floppy disks have different types of write protect tabs.
