Restore CorelDraw .cdr from MWBACKUP

Specs: Windows 7 / Win 3.1, Pentium 5 2.4 ghz
I have diskettes from a book I wrote in 1994 but foolishly thought the backup/restore mechanism of MWBACKUP would always be around and I would be able to retrieve the images created in CorelDraw, since I also backed up the program. Any clue what I can do? I have access to XP and Windows 7 only. I think I was using Win 3.1 at the time.

You could simply use DOSBOX and install the operating system that way and mount the floppy drive. Then use mwbackup to get the files providing you either have or can acquire a copy of mwbackup. DOSBOX runs practically everything made for DOS. It can even run Windows 3.1 fine.

DOSBOX is not hard to use and is not an intrusive install. It's handy to have for when this sort of thing comes up.
