Packard Bell Restore Floppy - Help

Specs: Win95, 133mhz 16mb
Hey Guys,

Many years ago when I was a teenager I used to roam these forums (same handle) in search for old software! I need everyones help on this one if you wouldn't mind!

I have a old 133mhz packard bell computer that was first computer, given to me as a xmas gift in 1996. It has been through many operating systems over the years while i experiment but now I would like to restore her back to her glory days.

I need Packard Bell Restore and Recovery Diskette 2.3w (mine has failed). I have lurked over the internet and found many other version that will boot the unit and allow me to click restore contents of the hard drive but when it finishes it simple boots and hangs up. I know I can boot it and put a generic win95 on it but i would really like it original!

I would really appreciate this floppy image, and if you remember my handle from ten years ago give me a shout out!

After 15+ years the chances of anyone still having the original diskettes is virtually nil, most people upgrade to W98SE.

ARM Devices the future. Windows have accepted the fact!

If I remember correctly, the original Win95 came on 13 special high capacity floppy discs. My guess is the purpose of the "recovery diskette" is to trigger the reinstall from the recovery partition (or possibly a recovery folder?). If you repartitioned/reformatted several times over the years, the recovery files are most likely long gone.
