I attempted to copy a list of 175 Favorites from an NT Laptop onto a floppy diskette in order to port these Favorites to an XP Laptop.
The copy terminated with "Disk Full" after approximately 60 Favorites were copied. Each Favorite was less than 512 bytes and the diskette indicated that 28k bytes of the available 1.44M were used. What am I doing wrong?

Try doing a scandisk after a full format of the floppy. The scandisk will tell you if there are any errors on the disk.
