Saving large file to floppy

Someone once showed me how to save a large file over several floppies. I need to copy a driver to a 98SE machine that won't read CD-RW, and I don't want to waste a CD-R. At 1.48MB, it won't fit on one floppy. Any takers?

Understand what you are saying but CDRs are only 18p each!!! If you burn it to CD as Multisession you can add more to it at a later date anyway. Alternatively, you could download Powerdesk 5 from PCA download page. You can then zip a file over multiple floppies. Powerdesk needs to be installed on both computers though. click here and scroll down to Powerdesk 5.

johnnyrocker, no, it downloads as a zip file.


 ÑÌÇKÑÂMË, went through that proceedure, then the blooming thing saved on one floppy! It's in my docs now.


pj123, I'll download Powerdesk.

Thanks all, job's done.

One of the small USB pen drives would have been handy in a case like this.
