Homemade Automatic Floppy Disk Archiver

(Video Link)

Ozzy Dweller has about 5,000 old 3.5 inch floppy disks. He'd like to back them up, but doing so manually, he found, was just too tedious. So he built a machine that loads them into a computer, copies them, then ejects them onto the floor.

Would've come in handy for those boxes of Amiga floppy disks we has at my house.

Yes, floppy disks and drives are outdated and unreliable but it's a chore to archive all that data you've stored over the last decade. I think it's brilliant.

I feel his pain, but I transferred all of my floppies years ago when we got our first computer where the floppy was the second drive after the CD-ROM.
