Recovering Aldus PageMaker Files

Remember Aldus PageMaker? It was a big deal when it was introduced in 1985, back when a 128K computer was considered the cutting edge of technology. PageMaker was a marvel that won awards and made desktop computer word processing practical. Over the years a lot of fine documents were created with PageMaker, a program that enabled anybody to digitalize any sort of document.

Aldus PageMakerBut back in those days the developers who created PageMaker were not thinking about the future of the documents that were being written with the program. They were a sharp bunch who revolutionized desktop publishing. But in 1985 those developers were not thinking that some 30 years up the road that their PageMaker documents would become inaccessible.

Did you use PageMaker back in the day to write your important unique documents, or do you happen to have some PageMaker documents on floppy disks, zip disks, hard drives or on your computer?
