Can anyone direct one toward a service which can retrieve data stored on 5.25 single-sided dual-density floppy disks (MS-DOS 1.25, written using EasyWriter, on a Sanyo MBC-550)?

    A question asking for pointers to services is not exactly on topic here. You may want to use your favoured search engine. – Raffzahn Apr 1 '19 at 20:49

    At present, this is a shopping question. As such, I'm closing it. Please read the tour, How to Ask, and then the previously linked blog post if you think you can improve it. – wizzwizz4 Apr 1 '19 at 21:39

A web search finds a number of companies which provide this sort of service, but I have never used any (and this isn’t the place to endorse one either).

There are some volunteers around the globe who might be able to help — the Archive Team has a list of volunteers, and a trip to vintage computing forums will find more. Terry Stewart (in New Zealand) also offers a similar service, albeit not for free.

    Agreed. Get quotes from specialists. The floppy disks may need preparation before any attempt is made to read them. – Mick Apr 1 '19 at 20:42
  • The archive team link is a good one. – Raffzahn Apr 1 '19 at 20:50
