Its called a CD writer. Floppies are good for ini's and .inf files. Drivers. Nothing larger than a meg. Too much work!!!

Its year 2001. You must get a CD writer.

I know what year it is and I have a CD writer. All three files total less than 1M, and I REALLY DO want to put them on floppies, if I can.

You can use DISKCOPY. There are others there that will do that but all are slow, they usually copy the whole disk sector to sector. There was a program that would do an image copy of a fd to a hd, and hd to fd. Even that was pretty slow. Don't remember the name.

Might consider doing a batch file that will wait for you to put in a blank disk, press return, copy the files HD to FDD, directory to check copy, loop back to wait.

I did same/similar to delete files from FD.

You can run this while you are surfing or whatever, listen for the FD to quit running. I was able to delete all files on fd for 25 or so fd in 2-3 hours as I remember.
