2 thoughts on “Another plea for floppy archives!

  1. About 4 years ago, I found the time to go through about 1/2 of my C64 floppies from the 80’s, and migrate their data into my “periodically transfer to fresh media” archive set. Although there were a lot of errors, I was surprised at how many disks still read fine. I guess I need to get on the ball about archiving the other 1/2!

  2. Seriously, I just pulled up some new 1.44mbs I formatted a year ago and they failed! To be fair, sometimes they could possibly read but never will because you formatted on a drive that head its heads out of alignment.
