Since this is sticky I thought of putting my question here;

How can one get rid of black spots on the floppy (internal) platter. I use a very similar method to the above to clean floppy disks with IPA. However I noticed some disks have areas which are darker, sometimes just spots, sometimes a full chunks. Also, not sure, but I am under the impression that these become more visible after IPA is applied. I tried using more IPA to remove them but to no avail.

So what are these dark spots? Is it possible to clean or the floppy can be considered dead once such black spots appear? Also does inserting disks with such dark spots in a floppy drive put the floppy drive at risk?
