How Magnets Affect Computer Disks
One of the most commonly used Computer data storaged mediums is a Computer
Disk or a Floppy. These are used in everyday life, in either our workplace or at home.
These disks have many purposes, such as:
Storing data: Floppies can be used to store software/data for short preiods of time,
Transferring data: Floppies are used to transfer/copy data from one computer to
Hiding data: Floppies

of the present file would be necessary for its correct use and any bad sectors would almost
destroy the file and make it worthless.
In conclusion, this experiment proved that floppies are very sensitive to magnets
and should not be brought near them at anytime. When the magnets were brought near the
floppies, the disks were damaged and the weakest magnet caused the least damage and the
strongest magnet caused the most damage.
