Data storage has expanded from text and numeric files to include digital music files, photographic files, video files, and much more. These new types of files require secondary storage devices with much greater capacity than floppy disks. In this chapter, you will learn about the many types of secondary storage devices including their capabilities and limitations.

secondary storage devices
Secondary Storage Devices
  • Most desktop microcomputer systems have floppy disks, hard disks, and optical disk drives
  • Are used to save, back up, and transport data files and programs

Page 220

floppy disks
Floppy Disks
  • Portable or removable storage media
  • Typically used to store and transfer small word processing, spreadsheet, and other types of files
  • Floppy disk drives (FDD)
    • Store data and programs
    • Retrieves data by reading electromagnetic charges
    • Also called flexible disks and floppies

Page 220

traditional floppy disk
Traditional Floppy Disk
  • Most common type is 2HD “two-sided, high-density”
  • Attributes
    • Shutter
    • Labels
    • Write-protection notch
    • Tracks
    • Sectors

Page 221

high capacity floppy disks
High Capacity Floppy Disks
  • Known as a floppy-disk cartridge
  • Require special disk drives
  • Most widely used is the Zip disk
    • 100 MB, 250 MB or 750 MB capacity
    • Used to store multimedia, database, large text, and spreadsheet files

Page 221

hard disks
Hard Disks
  • Use thicker, metallic platters for storage
  • Faster than a floppy diskette
  • Large capacity
  • Sensitive instruments
  • There are three types of hard disks:
    • Internal Hard Disk
    • Hard-disk cartridge
    • Hard-disk pack
  • Performance Enhancements
