The Floppy Disk is an item added by ComputerCraft. How they work and interact with the Computers is very similar to how they would work in the real world with a real computer: a floppy disk is a means to make one's data portable and is inserted into a Disk Drive in order to read it. This allows players to easily distribute their own software or use it as a backup.
Like individual computers, each Disk has its own directories within the disk to contain the data which makes it easily movable from within the computer interface using simple Unix-like commands such as cp (copy) or mv (move). The player can do anything with the files and folders on a disk that they can with the computer's own files and folders.
When a Disk is inserted into a Disk Drive connected to a computer, a directory on the computer's root called "disk" is visible; if multiple Disks are inserted into multiple Disk Drives there will be a number appended to the disk in the nth place on the directory (e.g., "disk2" for the second disk and so forth).
