How to use "Floppy disk" in context?

Floppy disks, also know as 3.5-inch floppy disks, refers to a type of fixed media optical disk storage device used from the late 1970s to the 1990s. Originally designed as a low-cost data storage option for personal computers, floppy disks became a popular means of sharing files, playing games, and storing photos and videos. Unfortunately, floppy disks become less common as personal computers transitioned to newer, more reliable storage options. While floppy disks are no longer widely used, they are still available for purchase through novelty and antique stores.
