If I remember correctly they were the original (Floppies) 5.2 inch and something like could hold 512K worth of Data ? Later they got smaller 3.5 inch made a little thicker and could hold 1.2 mb , placed into a hard plastic shell but was still called Floppy.

Back in the 80s my work PC's all had 5.2 floppy drives with pant loads of floppies - all apps came with them <-- mind you back then the Pro-Apps was not very large files, maybe 5 megs tops if that.
