How to use "Microfloppy" in context?

One of the most popular PC floppy disks ever was the Commodore 64 microfloppy Disk Drive. Floppy disks could hold up to 2 megabytes of data, compared to the 5 megabytes a regular floppy disk could hold. These disks were popular in the early 90s because they were much cheaper to produce and store data on than hard disks. Commodore also released the proper drive for their Amiga computers which made using floppy disks for data storage much more convenient.

Nowadays, floppy disks are only used for restoring old data.
