So hopefully one of you managed to pick up this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/334052245325
But it kinda sparked a thought, a bunch of the old Mac and Lisa floppies I have, have the glue underneath eating through the label. Anyone have any ideas to prevent this from happening and if possible, how to revert it?
I mean other than having modern day labels made which would ruin their value, that is.

Could you maybe use isopropyl alcohol to dissolve the old glue and then glue the label back on? I've tried this on some old Mac floppies and it seems to work pretty well. It doesn't reverse the existing damage, but at least it keeps things from getting worse.
