What is the difference between hard disc and floppy disc?
The difference is in the thickness and hardness of the disk's magnetic media. Floppy disks (even when encased in plastic housings like in 3.5" diskettes) hold the data on very thin, flexible (thus "floppy") plastic films. Hard disks hold their data on stiff ("hard") platters. Hard disks need to have hard platters because their ability to hold more data means there are fewer mechanical tolerances:. "Floppy" plastic films aren't as reliable.

Asked in Computer Memory, The Difference Between
Is thre any difference between disc and diskIf yes then what is it?
Actually, there is a difference between them and most professionals observe the difference. Disk tends to refer to magnetic storage devices such as floppies (floppy disks) and hard drives (also called hard disks). With a -c, however, the term refers to optical media such as a CD (Compact Disc) or DVD (Digital Video Disc or sometimes Digital Versatile Disc). Many people outside the industry don't know the difference and so it is commonplace to use them interchangeably but professionals will use the terms correctly. This is similar to the difference between a motor and an engine. A motor is driven by electricity while an engine is driven by internal combustion (e.g. gasoline, steam, natural gas, coal, diesel, etc.). If you have any other questions about terminology or other related issues, feel free to let me know.
How did the hard disk get its name?
The first discs that were made for computers were made from a thin material that bent easily. These were referred to as floppy disc then a smaller disc with a hard plastic cover was brought out to replace this which was originally meant to be referred to as a hard disc, however at around the same time the discs that computers ran on were also looking for a name and these ended up being called the hard disc and the new rigidly encased discs went back to being referred to as floppy discs.
