No thanks :) I was wondering if new media was still being made. I had dozens of my old 80s disks that were just flaking off the diskette as I was trying to read them for archiving. I can’t imagine old magnetic media is going to be that reliable, even still sealed in a box. I have 8mm video tapes from 1999 that are almost unreadable now, too. :(
