Does Anyone Use Floppy Disks Anymore?
Floppy disks are fast becoming extinct, but you might still receive small programs on floppy disks. Before installing a program from floppy disks, it's a good idea to write-protect the disks if they are not already write-protected. Write protection locks the disk, preventing the disk drive from making any changes to it. If you hold the disk with the label facing up and away from you, the write-protect tab is in the upper-left corner of the disk. Slide the tab up so you can see through the hole in the disk.
