    Post Demangetized Floopies

    If you have unused removeable disks that are demagnetized is there anything you can do to correct this problem?

    Depends on what you are tyring to do. How did they get demagnetized?
    You can "remagnetize" them just by formatting them, but you'll lose anything that was on them. If you need to recover data from them you are either looking at an expensive data recovery job, or you're out of luck. Sorry.
