All this depends on how big the directory is. If the directory is superior to 1,4 MB it is recommended to use a compression utility to compress(control) the files on the diskette or several diskettes. To verify the size of the directory in MS TWO, from the type of directory:

dir /s <press enter>

Once the directory has been included, at the end of the results it should see the bytes quantity taken.

If the directory is a 1.4 MB minor, it can use the following command to copy all the files of this directory on a diskette

copy *.* a: <press enter>

Hello Juisaha,

You need to make two potions of your file, depending on which format the file is in. If the file is a word document, save half of it one floppy disk and then the continuation on the next floppy disk. You can do the same for other documents that is dividing the documents into two accordingly.

Otherwise, you can choose to compress the file so as to reduce its size to fit on a single floppy disk instead of saving them on multiple floppies. One of the best software that you can use for compressing your file is called winrar, and you can get its trial version for free from the internet.

Hope this helps.
