As far as I'm aware as long as you take over the 2nd hole, you can use the 1.44MB as 720KB.

Since the recording material is a bit different it is not optimal to do that but in practice it works fine most of the time. A good HD floppy disk is surely better than a moldy DD.

I too would be glad to help...

I have 35 DD disks in front of me now -
doing nothing --- looking for a purpose.

Perfect. I've got load of disks sitting around too. Unfortunately, I can't vouch for their status until I need to actually use.

Now the question is. How does one go about the logistics and legality of this?

I'm not sure if things which are freeware still need licence for distribution?
