I want to save floppy disks to hard drive.

Specs: Windows XP
I have a number of floppy disks that I want to save while my old XP system is still running. I bought a new laptop with WIN 7 where I'll store the data.

I would suggest making an image file of them and storing the image file. This way if the files are bootable, it will retain the boot information.

Depends on the type of floppy. If you only have data then drag and drop to some folder, If you have a flash drive then put the files there.

If you mean boot or special disks you may try rawritewin or dd for windows.

If needed you can buy a usb floppy to get the data off later.

If they just contain a collection of files then you can store them wherever you like. You could create a main folder called Floppies then sub-folders for each one. This, of-course, is just normal computer folder and file handling.

If you are trying to do something more complex then please provide a better explanation.

Please come back and let us know how you got on.
