If you haven't already, you would be wise to make duplicates of those
floppies, and also burn images of them to a CD-ROM. Floppies lose their
magnetism over time and thus have a shelf life of ~10-20 years. They
may no longer read when you get around to trying to use them.
You should do the same with the zip100 disks.
