Or basically, the USB Floppy has the ability to extract DOS files from the "raw magnetic data" that the host system feeds it, and then copy these extracted DOS files to a FAT16-based (or FAT32) USB storage device, and vice-versa.
Meaning lots of convenience, that files appear and can be read from your USB stick as if it really were a floppy disk, that you can just stick it in Windows, drag and drop, and then move the USB stick to your CNC machine or whatever, and it sees the recently added files as if they were on a floppy disk all along.
Now we are going to install grub back to the MBR, which it is what most people to do.
An example would be an uncompressed recording of a song; it quickly gets into the tens and hundreds of megabytes, even though one song is only minutes long.
In this case, the magnetic platter of the floppy disk is only used to store digital data; the 1's and 0's are easy to convert, but the time stamp and duration of each bit can vary infinitely on the continuous analog track.
I could delete the file using explorer, but the file would *magically* reappear seconds after I deleted it.
After doing this a couple of times it became apparent that the file was stuck somehow.
meaning you discard and lose original data (in this case, time domain data) in the process, saying that you can reconstruct it "good enough".
This is what our standard USB Floppy unit does; for convenience of the users, not only does it interpret the raw analog magnetic tracks, but it also interprets the most common low-level format (the division of circular tracks into packets, each holding X amount of data) and it also interprets the FAT12 filing system that Microsoft DOS made so popular.
I accessed the Seagate Dashboard and opened the Seagate web preferences window and checked to ensure that the NAS operating system software was up-to-date.
It was up-to-date and no errors were logged in this interface whenever I attempted to delete this file using windows Explorer.
That means that your hard disk (as it’s seen above) it’s sda.
In any case we recommend to check hard disk size next to Disk /dev/sd X at the output’s beginning so that you make sure that you select the exact hard disk that boots initially in your machine.
