Ironically, floppies made longer ago seem to last longer.
Floppies (mostly 3.5") seem to have been made more cheaply / lest robust.

Coupla years ago I went through all my 5.25" Atari disks (from 1986 thru
let's say 1998), and only _one_ failed to read.  (It worked at first,
but failed later, when I actually went to copy stuff.  RIP, little bits.)
