EPISODE 2: Archivist's Guide to Kryoflux

For archivists preserving and providing access to data stored on floppy disks, the KryoFlux offers significant benefits. This floppy disk controller supports a variety of legacy encoding formats, effectively handles degraded data, and creates bit-for-bit disk images suitable for long-term preservation.

Previously, existing documentation for the KryoFlux had been scant and assumed a level of technical knowledge largely absent from archival literature and curricula. The Archivist’s Guide toKryoFlux is a manual designed to fill that gap. Written specifically for archivists, it provides clear instructions for practitioners using the KryoFlux to support the preservation of important cultural heritage data.

Join this webinar to hear more about the Guide, where to find it and how to use it.
