We transfer your 5.25-inch floppy disks to accessible files on a USB or External Hard Drive.
Introduced by Shugart Associates as a practical improvement over its 8” predecessor, the 5 1/4" Floppy Disk became the standard bearer for consumer data storage and delivery through the mid-to-late 70s. Functionally similar to the 8", the format’s build was composed of a paper-thin, magnetic disk, housed in a “floppy” plastic casing. A fabric liner, between the casing and the storage medium would act as a buffer, reducing friction, while removing dust particles from the disk surface. Initially with a 98.5kb storage capacity, later iterations would see an incremental increase alongside the advent of double-sided disk drives.
As a primary platform for operating system and word processor dependency, the 5 1/4" retained it’s relevance throughout the early 80s until it was replaced by a physically smaller, but larger capacity successor: the 3.5" Floppy.
We have a very rigorous Quality Control process which gives us the confidence to say that we completely stand behind our work and guarantee the results. If there are any issues with the quality or performance of the digital materials created (not having to do with the physical condition of your media) we will reprocess those materials at our expense, no questions / no hassles.
We are committed to ensuring the Privacy and Security of our clients information:
“Working with Digital Treasures was a great experience from start to finish. Our company needed to get some digital conversion work done quickly and at high quality and DT delivered on both accounts. They made the whole process simple and stress-free and provided us with a great quality product. We’re already planning to do repeat business converting our old video archive and I would highly recommend their services to others.”
