I was just curious as I've seen VHS drawers like that before, and I still have one, but not for floppies.  I'll have to keep an eye out for some.  The 800 is my favorite of the A8 line but I love my XEGS. I'm a little late in discovering disk based games for it but what I do have are entertaining. I especially like Solar Star and Omar.

I remember the VHS ones, not many in a case, we had 100's of tapes.  800, I still have and use that one today. and same desk as well.

That is impressive. It's not often to hear, let alone see pictures, of something someone still has and has continued to use for decades. Just out of curiosity again, if you have an Atari then you have games for it right?  What game(s) is your favorite?
