I have some experience of recovering data from floppy disks with physical errors, but, as yet, no experience whatsoever of those with filesystem errors.
The procedure is always the same: first use a track-copy program like X-Copy or the like to copy the data to a floppy without physical errors, then run a program like DiskSalv which can recover files from disks with logical errors.

The second step is always needed, even if the disk does not have physical errors. The error messages are similar, either. A physical error (unreadable block) always leads to a logical error (missing or corrupted data), too.
