Remember all the spreadsheet programs that were around before Excel took over the world?Yes, and I had plenty of time to convert the important ones to Excel.Got any data on floppy disks? Gone---nothing can read them anymore. Nope, as CD's became available I transfered all important data to them back when I had a computer that read floppies and could write CD's. Now I have one that can read/write CD's and DVD's. Guess what? I'm transferring important data to DVD's now. And technically I still have a computer sitting around that does have a floppy drive. And external floppy drives are still commercially available.Got any data on hard drives? When was the last time you backed up your hard drive?I do it monthly.Heck, do you even have multiple copies of your important data files in different directories or on different physical disks? Yes.
