hate to ask but have you tried using the new backup to read the data?
If you have tried and it wont acess it can you still access the win3.1 computer.

Hello there, can you put the data on floppies? It will be tedious but the file format is the same for floppies made with DOS 6.22 and Windows XP so there should not be a problem with translation or filesystems.
