I was given several dozen boxes of apple mac software. diskettes in DD HD and ED formats. Original system disks, games, apps, utilities, etc.
I want to archive these onto a more reliable media (putting aside for now the rightful argument that CD and DVD's don't last all that long)
and so I am coming to you all for your thoughts and advice.
First, many of the diskettes are of course old, and I have always been a little unclear as to which diskettes work in which Mac diskette drives.
I have many many many old Macs. So for this project, which Macintosh, with which diskette drive scenario would you recommend,
which utility would you use to image the diskettes, and whatever else you may think is important for this undertaking.
I have several external SCSI drives, SCSI zip drives too which I can use to ferry the imaged diskettes to a newer Mac like my G4 to
burn onto final media (DVD). I can also use ethernet on the home LAN.
thank you in advance
