So I have just inherieted a bunch of old floppy disks that contain a variety of old archived content that might be useful. I thought I would just load it up onto my PC, organize it, and burn it onto a CD and call it a day.
As it turns out most of these floppies are MAC format. But I did luck out, as 3 old PowerMac G3s are in the next room (the original beige ones, not the cool teal ones). Just from looking at a few of these disks it appears that most of the files were created in AppleWorks, most of them are text documents or spreadsheets, but at least one is a database.
Either way it looks like lots of floppy swapping to make all of this happen. What would you suggest I do here?
-Take all the word processing docs and open them in Word and save them on a Windows formatted floppy and swap, or is there something easier that I can do.
Also note that those MACs are not connected to any server at this point.
