Floppy Disk Drive

Definition(s)

  • A Floppy Disk Drive, also called FDD or FD for short, is a computer disk drive that enables a user to save data to removable diskettes. Although 8″ disk drives were first made available in 1971, the first real disk drives used were the 5 1/4″ floppy disk drives, which were later replaced with the 3 1/2″ floppy disk drives. 1
