    Might as well just use a piece of sandpaper instead...

    Looks more like a protective shipping insert than a cleaning disk. Looks like it was used as a flower pot decoration.

    At least they aren't asking for over $9000 because "scrap gold Steve Jobs l@@k".

    No, Trackmate had a unusual cleaning disk design. http://articles.baltimoresun.com/199...ard-disk-drive

    I don't know if a new Trackmate disk paired with the software did any better than a normal cleaning disk. I doubt soap and water would bring that disk back to useful condition.

    My version of the link turns up a brand new cleaning disk made to same design at the same price. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3-5-Flopp...h/232801957054
