Hi, my mum has a load of old Amstrad disks with various files on, in formats Locoscript, Protext & Mini Office Professional. She does not have the actual Amstard anymore. How can we go about getting these onto a pc? How can we convert them so they can be read, edited? Is there any hardware we can buy (ie. floppy drive), so that we don't have to send them to a company to convert? Regards, Rohan.

Recovery Toolbox for Outlook provides advance scanning modes and reasonable features than any other tool. I have already used this tool. It is very easy to use. To get more information visit site: Converting PST to EML
Insert a writeable CD or DVD into your
computer's CD or DVD recorder.
In the dialog box that appears, click Burn files to data disc.
In the Burn a Disc
dialog box, type a name for this disc, and then click Next.
It might take several minutes for the disc to be
formatted in the default Live File System format. When the formatting
is complete, an empty disc folder opens.
Open the folder that contains the files you want
to burn, and then drag the files into the empty disc folder.
You can copy files to the disc folder
by dragging them to the disc icon or to an open disc folder
As you drag files into the disc folder, they are
copied automatically to the disc.
in a long course of use it is quite natural to format the harddisk...
(due to viruses or something like that)
when formatting, the operating system needs a file system to organise data into files and folders.... so they can be managed effectively... when formatting it clears a particular area called a partition then divides it into sectors, tracks formed by the combination of these sectors, and cylinders...
sector is the smallest data block in hard disk an operating system can manage...
if not frequent formatting a hard disk not at all a problem....
you need not worry about the hard disk or its performace....
you can use you 160gb HDD as slave in your old pc. then coppy your files and save it in the old pc HDD. affet you back up your files you can put back your 160gb HDD in your original pc and you can format it now. hope you can use this one.
