lol unless what you're trying to back up is small as hell they're useless. I don't even think computers come with floppy disk drives anymore. I know my laptop doesn't have one.

floppys hold 3.sumthin mb i think?

completely useless nowadays tho

in good ol days you could split a 15mb rar file compressed 3 different ways and use three floppys to transfer shit but this was back when it was hard to get the internet inhome and 80mb albums were unheard of in the downloding world...

Floppy disks are still useable. I don't think many computer makers usually put floppy disk drives in computers anymore, but you can have them added on for a small fee when you're buying a computer. Skamp, haven't you ever used a floppy disk before?

1,44 or was it 1,33

Those disks were always suspect to viruses. Or just being damaged. I remember being them at high school 10 years ago to download pictures and audio files on from the internet. Mostly form South Park. And then take them home. Imagine that, being happy with 1 MB of pictures, or a small audio file that has Cartman singing: "In the ghetto, on a cold grey Chicago morn, another little baby child is born, in the ghetto, in the ghetto. -Ow, there is Kenny's House."
