Will the tape preservative work on floppy disks? -B.

“Will your LAST Tape Preservative also work on 3 1/2 and 5 1/4 floppy disk media?”  Thanks, B.

Yes it will function just as it does on magnetic tape media.  Most of the 3 1/2 and 5 1/4 floppy discs that I have seen are enclosed in a semi-sealed envelope.  Therefore, one would have to have access to the head port while the disc is spinning, to apply the Preservation Treatment.

Thank you for your query, Walter Davies

[I left this question on the site just to see if anyone reads it. For the first 2 people to get this far, send us an email and I will send you a free bottle of Record Preservative. If this note is still visible, I probably have not had 2 takers yet! -Jeff ]
