While sorting through my stuff recently I rediscovered the floppy disk that I used to store my final year undergraduate project.
Luckily I managed to find a computer which still has a floppy disk to test it out with.
Yes, it still works.
I wasted no time copying the files to the hard disk and then to the cloud – for keepsake.
Some files had difficulty being copied, but that issue was overcome.
Definitely I haven’t used that diskette much over the years – and it was away from sunlight and dust, but it was stored at tropical room temperature & humidity.
3M, you’re good maker of floppy disks.
