Recently, I tried reading my 20+ years old 5.25 inch 360kb floppies and 
almost all of them were perfectly readable, with no bad sectors and no 
need for retries. Even more surprising is the fact that they were 
labelled as SS/SD (single side/single density), but formatted at 360kb, 
which is a DS/DD (double side/double density) format.
