For the 3.5" floppies: For future proofing, I bought a USB reader.


When my previous employer shut down I salvaged a USB floppy drive from the laptop bag one of our salesguys was using. I didn't even know at the time they existed. Tried it with a few floppies I still had - worked fine.

It's been in a drawer since (and given how long I've been at my current employer, that must be close to 20 years now). I think I've used it exactly once, and that was probably to create a .flp file (think .ISO but for diskettes).

I checked on Amazon a while ago - they're still out there (the USB readers, that is).
