Windows 11 still manages to handle floppy drives

Windows 11 introduced greater hardware requirements compared to Windows 10 from a few years ago. Nevertheless, Microsoft did not deprive the new operating system of support for some obsolete devices. Even such decades-old as old floppy drives.

Youtuber running the Jrcraft channel decided to check how an outdated computer with Windows 11 is doing a 5.25-inch floppy drive. It is an “invention” from several decades ago, which is no longer widely used anymore. It turns out, however, that the new windows handle it well and allow it trouble-free reading of data from such media. Check it out in the video below.

It is worth adding that the floppy disks themselves are not “extinct” yet. They have a specialized use all the time. As a curiosity, it is worth adding that the Boeing 747 still receives key software updates using such carriers.

At the same time, we invite you to listen to the latest episode of the podcast Technically Thing Taking. This time we talked about electricity prices, the growing nuclear power near the Polish border and how many of us know that the reactor has been operating near Warsaw for several dozen years.
