Housekeeping MS-DOS

Last year someone from the office bought me MS-DOS 5 still in the original packing as a practical joke during the secret santa gift exchange.

I've been keeping it on my shelf for almost a year and its about secret santa time again. As I am not that evil, I decided to dump it this year. Before it goes to the bin, I thought i might as well image the disks in case the planet blew up.

I opened the shrink wrapped box and found 5 floppy disks and I dont mean 3.5inch disks. Good grief. To give an idea on my view about floppies, 2 out of 3 of my current machines doesn't even have 3.5 inch floppy drives and the one that does is a linux box, which is there for historical reasons. Although I think I might at some point use to backup essential configuration files, but meanwhile with external drives, why bother?

Anyway, as you can see I used a scanner to copy the disk in the end. Here's to backups!
