If you were looking for the item, please see Floppy Disk.

The Disk API allows you to interact with disk drives. These functions can operate on locally attached or remote disk drives. To use a locally attached drive, specify “side” as one of the six sides (e.g. “left”); to use a remote disk drive, specify its name as printed when enabling its modem (e.g. “drive_0”).

Note: as of ComputerCraft 1.77, all computers (except command computers) can be placed within a disk drive to access it's internal storage like a disk.
