We've got two old computers we don't use anymore, because they're slow and low on memory. But, both still have files that I need to access. Both have broken CD drives, one is old enough to have a 3.5" floppy drive (but it is also broken), so the only realistic way to access the files is via our home network.
What I really want to do is copy them all onto an external drive, but I don't have one with enough space available. So, the project sits and the towers gather dust.
My task for next week is to aquire a large-enough external hard drive, copy all the files I need and dispose of the towers. Will update.
