My first thought is replace the windows floppy driver with another one, maybe an open source one exists that will do what you need. Or maybe you can get away with booting into linux off a cd/usb and then copy the files from there.
Yes, another floppy driver was what I was hoping for.
Years ago, I saved a lot of files on floppies coming from another OS, one that used 2048 byte sectors, and therefore managed to pack more than 20% more data per floppy than the IBM format. We did that by installing an alternate floppy driver in Windows - I don't remember if it was 3.11 or 95, but it sure was the 16-bit flavor. The file system was quite different, but very familiar to us, so once we got hold of the sectors, picking out the files was easy.
I was hoping that someone had written a similar driver for Win7 or Win10, handling floppies without a format code.
I might look around for some *nix software that handles it, but I guess it has to do it the way old DOS did: Try one format after the other until a read succeeds. That really is sort of a crazy approach; I wouldn't expect Linux to have copied it! But you never know...
Our cockroaches, however, can't find any winter jackets in their size and our package warmers don't work below freezing, consequently; we are unable to safely ship cockroaches when the forecast is below 40 for 2 or more consecutive days.

Cockroaches are the happiest when they aren't in a shipping box for a long period of time. Therefore, we ship cockroaches out on Monday or Tuesday via 2-3 day USPS priority mail from Michigan. This way they won't sit in the Post Office over the weekend.
Pet ownership is a responsibility that builds character and confidence - and what better pet to own then your very own cockroach! If you've decided to take the plunge and dive into the world of cockroach husbandry, you might need some help supplying your colony and keeping your cockroaches alive and kicking.
