    diskette (floppy disk)

    A diskette is a random access, removable data storage medium that can be used with personal computers.

  • Double-Density Compact Disk (DDCD)

    Double-Density Compact Disk (DDCD) is a CD format that increases the storage capacity of the disk through means such as increasing the number of tracks and pits (scores on the disk that are used to encode the data).

  • double-parity RAID

    Double-parity RAID (redundant array of independent disks), also called diagonal-parity RAID, Advanced Data Guarding (RAID_ADG), or RAID-6, is a method of protecting against multiple storage drive failures by creating two sets of parity data on an array of hard disks.

  • DRAM (dynamic random access memory)

    Dynamic random access memory (DRAM) is a common type of random access memory (RAM) used in personal computers, workstations and servers.

  • DRDRAM (Rambus Dynamic Random Access Memory)

    RDRAM (Rambus Dynamic Random Access Memory) is a memory subsystem that promises to transfer up to 1.6 billion bytes per second.

  • driver

    A driver is a program that interacts with a particular device or special (frequently optional) kind of software.

  • dropout

    A dropout is a small loss of data in an audio or video file on tape or disk.

  • dual-layer magnetic tape (dual-side magnetic tape)

    Dual-layer magnetic tape, also known as dual-side magnetic tape, is a high-density storage medium capable of holding far more data than conventional tape backup... (Continued)

  • DVD (digital video disk)

    DVD is an optical disc technology with a 4.7 gigabyte storage capacity on a single-sided, one-layered disk, which is enough for a 133-minute movie.

  • DVD-RAM

    DVD-RAM is a DVD(optical disc) technology for high-capacity data storage for computers.

  • E

    EDO RAM (extended data output RAM)

    EDO (extended data output) RAM is a type of random access memory (RAM) chip that improves the time to read from memory on faster microprocessors such as the Intel Pentium.

  • email archiving

    Email archiving (also spelled e-mail archiving) is a systematic approach to saving and protecting the data contained in email messages to enable fast retrieval.

  • EMC Atmos
