Re: Not just the Boss'es that do this
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.
