The 3.5″ floppy became the standard storage disk in the late 1980s, due mainly to the fact that it provided better protection and more compact data storage than its predecessor, the 5.25″ floppy. This was slowly replaced by other formats including Zip, Jaz and Tape Drives. Many companies still have files stored on these types of media and quite often use our services to recover the Data from them.
