In the computer world, the 1.44 MB disk has been the industry standard for decades. While the larger formats of CDs and DVDs are becoming more popular, there's a reason the simple floppy has been a favorite for so long. It is versatile, durable, and compact--making it an efficient and reliable way to transfer and store any kind of data.
First of all, the 1.44 MB size is larger than you might think. Companies tout their 40 GB portable hard drives, but in reality, the vast majority of files will fit easily on 1.44 MD disk, whether they be text, image, or simple program. Most often, a 1.44 MB disk is best for carrying a single file or folder.
In addition, a disk is durable. With a hard plastic shell protecting the magnetic disk inside and a metal hatch covering the only opening, it's very hard to do any damage to the information contained within. Add to this that a disk is easily erased and re-written, and you have a sturdy and reusable data storage device.
Finally, the biggest advantage of a diskette is its price. When you compare the cost of a single reusable disk to the cost of a one-use CD-R, you'll notice that despite its smaller capacity, the 1.44 MB disk is your greater value by far.
