    After backing up a quicken file, I open up drive A to read the disk. I
    closed the file and removed the disk. The next time I tried to use Drive A,
    it would not work. I looked into my computer file and Drive A was missing.
    I have not found a way to restore it. Any info would be appreciated. Ike

    Check the floppy drive cables. They may have come loose.

    Have you looked at the front of the case? That's where the floppy drive is usually.
    If it's not there it may have fallen out. Have a look in the bottom of the case.
    Failing that just buy a new one. they are cheap.

    I think it's IT telling the OP to move on. "Floppy Disk??" - I think I heard
    of that, once upon a time.
