5 1/4"

Messages like the one below are why I still have a 5 1/4" floppy disk drive in my computer:

"<xxx> has some files on Nota Bene that he would like to convert to Word. Problem is: they are on 5¼” floppies. Would you have some way to transfer these files to a flash drive?"

When I started this job. I discovered that many files were stored on floppies. Mac-formatted floppies. That even todays' Macs couldn't read. That's why I store everything in plain text or RTF.
