    Use Winzip and span disks.

    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.

    Yep. My new laptop didn't even come with a floppy drive.
