Found some old floppy disks for my 130XE (any way to verify or recover data?)

I recently went home to my parents house and found 2 bins of 5-1/4
disks from the mid-80s for my Atari 130XE (although I can't find the
computer and hard drive right now).
I miss all of these games and applications. More importantly I miss
many of the programs in basic I wrote. I truly wonder if all of the
data is destroyed (it has been almost 20 years).
Has anyone found old disks from their Atari that survived such a long
time?
Is there a way I can verify if the data is still preserved using a
5-1/4 disk drive from an IBM PC?
Even better if I can find a way to recover the data if possible and
copy it onto a new 5-1/4 disk, preserving
the file format etc. I would looking to understand my options.
Thanks
