A normal 3½ inch disk can store 1.44 megabytes of data. This is usually enough for simple text documents. A special type of floppy disk was made in the late 1980s. It could store 2.88 MB of data. They did not become popular. Larger size floppy disks became available in the 1990s. The two most popular were the Zip drive and the Jaz drive, both made by Iomega. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Maddy Reckong pio, India 256 Questions 276 Answers 2 Best Answers 386 Points View Profile Maddy Added an answer on May 7, 2020 at 1:34 pm The floppy disk (or a 3 1/2 floppy for today’s standard) is a removable magnetic storage medium. Floppy disks are used for moving information between computers, laptops or other devices. Some early digital cameras, electronic music instruments and older computer game consoles use floppy disks. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
