I got one of them great requests from the boss where all you can say is "challenge accepted"

There is a old CAD machine that does some cutting in the work shop and because it is an old one the only thing to store the data on is floppy disks as if you search from the hard drive you need to use the arrow key and keep hitting down the list of 10,000 files. But as time goes on these floppy's are corrupting and it is getting harder to find.

So i need to ask for some help to hunt some down. this is the box that my boss has in his office and these are just double density(DD) not double sided double density(DSDD) which is the problem because i can mostly find DSDD type. if i could find 100-200 of these it would help out a lot and delay a upgrade oft he entire shop for another 1-2 years which is just stupid expansive.

any help is much appreciated
