  1. Hi
    How do (or can) I copy downloaded driver - 3.5mb to floppy (1.44mb) disk? I
    keep on getting window telling me that the file is too large. But when I
    have used backup - onto floppy - I can backup 6mb using 5 floppies with no
    problem.
    Ta in advance
    jim

    IIRC, WinZip (and some of the other compression apps)
    is able to span across several floppy diskettes. Can it
    be done for a single file...not sure as it has been a
    very long time ago. This is the era of ZIP/JAZ drives,
    CD-RW, USB Flash drives, etc.
