Question Can I surface format Zip 750 disk in Windows 7?

Feb 25, 2019
I'm moving some old data files stored on Zip disks and have run into one that cannot be read either with a Mac or Windows 7. Message appears in 7 asking to format the drive but I assume that will wipe the Zip disk clean.

Is there a way to "surface format" the disk while leaving the data untouched?
