The Floppy Disk

Although floppy disks are not used often in today’s world of gigabytes and terabytes, some companies and individuals still rely on them to update or back up older systems. For others, floppy disks have become a common feature in recycled art. They also represent a specific time in our history, providing a bit of nostalgia in many movies produced in the 1980s and ’90s. And the icon of a floppy disk remains the universal symbol for saving files.
