There really is very little reason to use floppy disks anymore.
Devices such as USB drives are not only more convenient, faster, and more spacious than floppies, but they’re also inexpensive. A good USB drive will only run about $15-50 depending on what brand and type of size of USB drive you get.
Some models even offer encryption. What’s not to like? Do yourself a favor: Dump your floppies, go to Wal-Mart or any computer store, and buy a USB drive. There’s no reason not to.
When floppies fade into computer history and everyone else tries to make the transition to a new storage format, you’ll be glad you have one.
You can even impress a few of your non-computer-savvy friends and maybe even get them to purchase one.
I believe we will soon arrive at the end of a floppy era… a very floppy era…
