floppy disk or disc

A floppy, or floppy disk, is an effective data storage device that has been around for a long time. It can be used for booting the PC, backing up data, transfering data from one computer to another, and many other uses where a large amount of storage capacity is not needed.

Although it no longer comes with many new computers (which is a big mistake), floppy disk drives remain an inexpensive and highly practical read/write removable storage device. Every PC should have one.
