I had a small accident in my basement a couple of days ago and in
cleaning everything out I discovered an old box of 5.25 TRS-80/Heathkit
floppies with all my old stuff on them were damp with water. I let them
air dry overnight, but some of them still don't spin freely.
What can I do to recover these disks - I hate to lose them. What sort of
damage does water cause to floppies?
