no , not just the bosses.

I used to have this constantly with students toting floppy disks , and this was in an age when there was zero reason to use a floppy. There were home drives , email , even usb sticks.

When i finaly confronted one of the "teachers" responsible and asked why they had their only copies of their data on floppies the reply was "its in the syllabus to use a floppy disk".

Apparently giving all your data more than a 50% chance of survival wasnt on the syllabus.
