Having rescued all of my floppies which survived the cleanout of the late nineties and early 2000s - I have one machine with an internal floppydrive still (my trusted ripstation), even my latest server 2012R2Â has one USB floppy constantly connected. This is of course since I still come by quite some collections present in various server rooms where I work. Whenever I come by originals, I ask if I can borrow the diskettes. More often than not I am asked to take all and destroy them after I have gotten whatever I am after.
Sure enough, by the use of the Kryoflux interface, most can still be copied some 30 years after creation.
Now, for destruction, say hello to the 1 kg magnet I got in my posession at the age of 12 and my scissors. The combination never failed me
