DOS 6.22 diskettes

I still have my DOS 6.22 diskettes put away. I know Iíll never use themóactually I couldn'tít if I wanted to since my computers donít have the floppy disk drive. But I keep themódonít know why but I hate to throw them away. I remember when I installed them in the office computer and though they were so cool. Are there any of you like me and still hanging on to them?

Yep...still have mine. I also have a few floppy drives laying around in storage. My mobo still has a floppy header, if I have an inkling to I could go ahead and install one.

Note: they do make a usb floppy drive.

Yeah, I keep all my old PC progs/OS disks. Just to look at them once in a while & think back to those days. A while back I grabbed an old machine & just for the fun of it, I installed Win 95 & played with that for a while....

Hell, I still have some 5.25 floppy disks in my desk....

I remember using the 5.25. Using one now would be a little like driving a model-T Ford.

I still have some 3.5" disks but not here. I fried my last floppy drive and I haven't bothered to replace it. Why spend the money? I've never had anything "bigger" though.

I still have copies. They are not on floppies. I copied them to a rom disk. I have often thought I could put them on a USB stick but have never tried it.

I still have Microsoft Excel on the original floppies. I have no idea if that old Excel will work on Windows 7/64.

For years I stored all my typesetting for my "Very " smallprinting business on floppies and even after 8 years of retirement I still get some of my old customers asking me to run off 50 letterheads which I am happy to do on my modern printer. It does mean keeping Windows 98 on an old machine as that was the last OS that took my original desk top publishing program now defunct! But surpisingly the printer driver works in Win 98!
