Nowadays, most computers and notebooks are shipped without a floppy drive. However, the need for a floppy drive still exists; the old, trustworthy 3.5” floppy disk is still one of the most used media types in the world. Small files like drivers, software updates, patches for operating systems, anti-virus updates and boot-diskettes are still being shipped on floppy disks.

Also, a lot of people still have old text files, spreadsheets, pictures etc saved on floppy disks. So there will always come a time when you need a floppy drive for a software update, to access some of your old data, or you need a diskette to quickly save a small file on.
