Got Old Floppies? Sabrent USB Drive to the Rescue

July 22, 2015

Recently I was working with someone who used the Hire the Geek service to perform various tasks on their computer. One of those questions involved reading data off a pile of old 3.5″ floppy disks.

Most of us do not have a drive that can read these floppy disks any more, but there is an inexpensive solution for those who need it. The Sabrent External USB Floppy Drive shown below currently sells for less than $14 at Amazon and will read those old disks on your new computers.

So if you find a stack of floppies and want to know if there is anyone important on them, pick up one of these drives and you can solve the data mystery of those disks.
