I got this error, when trying to login via Remote desktop to a windows machine. I tried hitting the “reset password” link on the login screen and got this message. I was sort of shocked of confused, how can a floppy disk help me now.
Windows users must be aware of so frequent OS updates, on almost all operating systems, ranging from Windows XP to latest Windows 8 developer preview. Still on these so much updated windows operating systems, getting an error message to use Floppy disk is really weird experience !
“Floppy disks, sounds like a stone age storage media now, most of the machines don’t have a floppy disk drive now :))”
Anyway, I respect Microsoft for the awesome Ms. Office and stable windows XP and 7 operating systems.
