Last week I needed the CAD experts to archive some construction "As-Built" drawings to the server. I handed the guy a stack of CDs and one 3-1/2 inch floppy that contained a corrected drawing for one small job.
"What is this?" was the comment. This guy is older than me so I knew the real question was "What am I going to do with this?" since none of the PCs have floppy drives. Luckily I snagged a portable USB floppy drive a few years ago out of the trash bin when someone thought they would no longer need it, so I handed him the drive too. I think it is the only such drive in the building and there are drawers full of 3-1/2 inch disks containing environmental remediation records!
Now there probably aren't too many folks still in the work force who have seen the old Wang word processing system 8-inch floppy drives.
