Not only did I findmy 1993 Sun Sparcstation 5, but I also found,get this, a DOUBLE SPEED USB 3 1/2 inch external floppy dis drive.Should I call Antiques Roadshow?
That's a 3 1/2 inch USB floppy drive not a USB 3 floppy drive, just so you're clear....
I still keep one of those in the attic.
I'm a frm believer in the "you'll never know when it might come in handy" philosophy.
You and my wife should get on famously.
She keeps blown lightbulbs and flat batteries....grrr....
I've got a 3.5" USB floppy drive kicking around somewhere in a cupboard. I'm keeping it as I have got some stuff still on old floppy disks I've never gotten round to transferring to CD or USB stick. I reckon the overhead of keeping it is much less than the time it would take me to transfer everything. Sigh. Another task on my to do list.

I haven't used a floppy drive in years. I also seem to remember going through my collection of floppy disks, when I moved to Fronce, and threw virtually all of them away. I couldn't see the need to keep my setup disks for Windows 3 and 3.1, and other software of that era.
