    I've still got a W98SE hard drive that I can plug in as a USB, and some of that goes back to 1998.

    I have older art projects still around from college. That was 1994 -97.

    The oldest working file is a solitaire program I bought around 1998. I just hauled the whole file over to 7Pro and it ran. I'm still playing it.

    I also still have most of my Palm software and games.

    The oldest files I have are some PostScript® fonts dated 5/1/1990. :eek:

    I have some pics taken 11/11/94. They seem to be the oldest files on my current PC. I still have my dos 3.1 installation disks and a complete backup of my PC on eight inch floppies. No reader for either.

    Yours truly.. note the cell phone :rolleyes:

    I could probably find email from the 1980s if I tried hard enough. Certainly have quite a bit of stuff from 1994 (emails, analysis macros for systems which no longer exist...).

    Slightly embarrassingly, I find that I cannot locate the source files for my thesis (late 80s), which I sort of feel I should have somewhere...

    Well In my tower pc I still have files from my win95 and OS/2 warp days. As far as files on media storage, I have my TRS-DOS disks from my high school TRS80-III and IV days (1984-1987). I have long since gotten rid of my C-64 and vic-20 stuff. At one time I had stuff for an ALTOS CP/M system on eight inch floppy..

    Been on this computer since 2013. I have no idea what it is so I think it's best I leave it alone. Don't want to break it again :S
