Users can do it as well

In the 80's I installed publishing systems for about 15 local papers. Each site was given a few boxes of 720k 3.5" floppies for backing up after each edition.

Then one day I noticed that to "speed" things up the Editors were inserting disk 1, then disk 2 then disk 1, then disk 2 etc - to save using disks (needed a box for a full backup)
