A floppy disk is a data storage medium that is composed of a disk of thin, flexible (“floppy”) magnetic storage medium sealed in a square or rectangular plastic carrier lined with fabric that removes dust particles. Floppy disks are read and written by a floppy disk drive or FDD.Invented by the American information technology company IBM, floppy disks in 8-inch (200 mm), 5 1/4-inch (130 mm) and 3 1/2-inch (90 mm) forms enjoyed three decades as a popular and ubiquitous form of data storage and exchange, from the mid-1970s well into the 2000s. While floppy disk drives still have some limited uses, especially with legacy industrial computer equipment, they have now been superseded by USB flash drives, external hard disk drives, optical discs, memory cards and computer networks.
Our equipment supports following media and formats:
- Windows and IBM PC 5-1/4″ and 3-1/2″ floppies
- Apple II and Apple Macintosh 5-1/4″ and 3-1/2″ floppies
- Commodore 64 and 128 floppies from 1541 and 1571 drives

- CP/M files
As information technology has advanced, digital data storage and transfer has become more and more important to end users.
The 3.5″ floppy has become the “standard” floppy disk since about the late 1980s, thanks largely to the fact that it provides better protection and more compact data storage than its predecessor, the 5.25″ floppy. However, many machines that were installed in the era of the 5.25″ floppy disk are still used in areas ranging from education to manufacturing. These machines can’t be limited to just the software that was available 20 years ago, though, which is why we at FloppyDisk.com duplicate floppies of all shapes and sizes
