I look back and find it hard to image that we used to install computer software using floppy disks. If you can still recall, each disk can only store a maximum of 1.44 MB. Because of this size capacity, most of the data and files you can transfer were limited. Of course, we don’t have to deal with such restrictions nowadays, with large flash drives and DVDs.
Most CPUs don’t come with floppy disk drives anymore for obvious reasons. However, if you still have some important files or documents stored on such disks and found yourself in a bind because you had no idea how to access them anymore, then you’re in luck: the USB Floppy Disk Drive is now here…think of it has a classic throwback to the times when DOS ruled.
Basically, you just plug the USB Floppy Disk Drive into your USB port and use it to access data on your floppy disks, transfer them so you can create backups, and view documents that you thought you’d never be able to access again. Pretty cool, huh?
