This article is about examining floppy disk layout, and ultimatly about understanding nuances of it enough that we will be able to manually read through and extract files from raw binary files of disks, know the names of deleted files, undelete files, and examine unused space on disk for traces of other files or hidden data. All of this by hand...and eye.

    Two words of caution. This is technical, and this is alot of reading. In the actual article i am already up to about 6 pages and i havent even got the part on undeleting files yet! You are expected to have a decent grasp (or at least familarity with hex and binary numbers, and should be very proficient with disk imaging software or raw viewing of disk contents.

Anyway onto the goods!
