Is there any way to "undo" or "restore" a floppy disk to the state it was in before I decided to copy something from another floppy disk to it? It was after the fact that I read that all information on the destination disk would be erased.

There are no guarantees here as the "overwriting" of data may have damaged the underlying files. You might want to try the File Recovery program from the link below:

PC INSPECTOR? File Recovery

Hope this helps.

Thank you, I have downloaded the program and will work on it.

Hope it does work as I have about 30 songs for seniors that may be gone (boo hoo)
