The standard 1.44 mb floppys IS a 2 MB Floppy, but UNFORMATTED. When you format it, you lose some of this "available space" to the "formatting utility". Getting the "utility" mentioned above is one solution, zipping is your other solution. Zipping your info will usually more than double the data you can put on your FD. There are several zipping utilities including WINZIP and WINRAR.
