I would make dd copies of those whilst you can - floppy disks don't
That's my intention.
These are good quality disks, not the filth they sold on later days.
I tried a decade ago and they were good.
dd is no good with them, they have to be restored with proprietary
software (PC tools backup) in a suitable machine. Which is why it is such
a nuisance that I balkout at the idea.
