Since then, I have switched to a 250mb Zip Drive. And what a difference. When I was using 1.44mb floppies, it took quite a few just to back up necessary files. Now, with 250mb zip floppy, I can back up WHOLE PROGRAMS, and not just important files.
The 250mb floppy holds equivelant of just over 173 of 1.44 floppies. Talk about saving space.
The cost? The 250mb Zip Drive itself can sell for around $150-$200. But real savings is in floppy disks, time saved, and convenience.
A 1.44 floppy disk sells for around 50 cent each, depending on quantity you buy, and where you buy them. So, 173 would cost you about $86.50. The last zip floppies I bought were $55 for 4, which makes them $13.75 each. Compare $13.75 to $86.50 for same amount of disk space. A huge saving. And you only have to mess with 1 disk, instead of 173. I love it.
But REAL important thing here is to BACKUP, no matter how you do it, JUST BACKUP.
