Formatting prepares a floppy disk to store data

A floppy disk is a magnetic disk used to store computer data. A floppy drive is the drive that the disk is inserted into to read and write data on the floppy disk.

Floppy disks use magnetic disk to store the data.

It can store computer data. The amount of data stored will depend on the size of the floppy disk and whether it is a high density or low density disk.

That means you can store 1.44 MB of data on the floppy.

DVD by far. A DVD can store 4.7 gigabytes of data. A floppy disk can store 1.44 megabytes of data. 1000 megabytes = 1 gigabyte.

A hardware device, such as a hard disk or floppy disk, used to record and store data.

If you put it on a floppy disk. It's a storage device nothing more. By the way flashdrives are smaller and store a lot more data.

DVD by far. A DVD can store 4.7 gigabytes of data. A floppy disk can store 1.44 megabytes of data. 1000 megabytes = 1 gigabyte. i would like to know why?????????????????

All the data in the floppy disk will be deleted permanently.

data is stored on both sides of a floppy disk

Hard Disks are ofcourse more durable compared to floppy disks Hard disks store more data compared to floppy disks In a way, Hard disks are "universal" while floppy disk drives can only be used on obselete machines Hard disks load and store data more quickly compared to floppy disks

they store data and they spin when in use, thats about it.

Because a CD was designed to hold more data.

The following device are used to store data permanently.These are Hard Disk Drive(HDD),Compact Disc(CD/DVD),Floppy Disk,Zip and Tape.

the floppy disk has tiny storage and a slow data transfer rate

If the same data is already in the floppy disk or any other disk, and you are again copying the same data, then it is called the overwriting ..

A high density 3.5 inch floppy disk

A floppy disk can store data on it so you can transport it to other computers. There are now other ways to accomplish this such as cds, dvds, and usb.

The 3.5 floppy disk does have magnetism within them and for this reason, magnets destroying data on the floppy disk fueled the myth about magnets destroying your computer. If you buy a cheap magnet and put it near a floppy disk, the magnet will stick to it. After a few seconds, the information on that floppy disk will be destroyed and you will no longer be able to access the data.

Both hard disks and floppy disks contain a magnetic surface on which data (information) can be recorded, accessed, and erased. While the hard disk is a permanent Storage and unlike floppy disk. The is still used in every computer but with the invention of USB the floppy disk is not using to much. The space of floppy disk was 8 MP not more but USB space is to many as well as Hard disk. We used Floppy Disk to make our work easy to transfer data to floppy and give it to your friend and the data is transfer to his PC.

Floppy disk is a magnetic storage disk, where in data was stored in records, derived from the tracks and sector formations.

Data can be stored on a floppy disk, since that is what they are designed for. As for whether it can be "received" on one, that is a pretty vague question, as it doesn't address HOW the data is received.
