Interesting Fact: The earliest floppy disks, developed in the late 1960s, are 8 inches (200 mm) in diameter;[1] they became commercially available in 1971.[2] These disks and associated drives were produced and improved upon by IBM and other companies such as Memorex, Shugart Associates, and Burroughs Corporation.[3] The term “floppy disk” appeared in print as early as 1970,[4] and although in 1973 IBM announced its first media as “Type 1 Diskette” the industry continued to use the terms “floppy disk” or “floppy”.

  1. ah, I still have tuns of these and actually purchased a USB reader so I could access them…

    • Yeah they were. They used to have enough storage in them to put a full game and now I don’t think you can fit one photo on it. Thank you very much for stopping by and check out my work. 🙂
