Floopy drive not  almost died. Nowadays, Peoples rarely using it on computer. Few years ago it was only option for  data storage. At the time only Sony manufacturing floppy dirve in their unites. PC companies other then Sony already has been stopped production years ago. We now have lot of new option for storage over internet as well as physical medium.

The journey of floppy drive was stated in 1971 in two sizes. One is 3.5 inch and other is one most popular 1.44 inch. Sony already stopped manufuturing of 3.5 inch floppy drive but still manufacting 1.44 inch floppy drive becuase 1.44 inch floppy still in demand in country like India and Japan. From that starting Sony alone have sold 12 millon floopies.  Now  it is time of  portable media such zip drive, cd, dvd, usb hard disk and ditachable harddisk.  Still so many people using it however i don’t even see a single person around me who is using. If Sony still manufactuing  floppy it mean floppy still getting sold in the market. You may not see floopy drive in the next few years becuase flooppy completely going to wipe out fron market in the next few years. The only one manufacturing company sony has finally decided to stop floppy drive manufacturing in the next year.
