Ok, this is going by memory of our email discussion, but I think this is what happened...

* The coder finds an old Amiga formatted zip disk that he used to have the source on.
* He inserted it into his PC Zip drive to see if it was blank or contained data.
* He opened it and couldn't see any files in it.
* He then tested the disk by copying over some pc files onto the drive. The transfer works. This mistake would obviously make trying to recover any lost/overwritten data very difficult
* He then assumed that he must of formatted the Zip disk a long time ago.

This is why I didn't pursue the matter further.
