I have a friend who asked me to help her recover some files on her floppy disk. I have a piece of software for Windows that I purchased awhile back that does wonders at recovering files on a damaged disk. However, since I'm trying to spend as much time as possible in Linux I thought I'd ask if there's any free tools for file recovery off of floppy disks for Linux. From her description of the problem, it sounds like the FAT was corrupted (Windows tells her it can't read the floppy and asks if it should format it).
