Well, in the 1960's Disk Storage is released, DRAM, and Twister Memory. All allowing more storage then the previous decade.
Peace man! In the 1970's we advanced even further with the floppy disc (Originally 8 in, then reduced to 5 1/4inches)
In the 1980's we had the first hard disc drive and a 3.5" floppy disc
In the 1990's we advanced with the invention of: the zip disc (100MB) and the DVD (1995).
In the 2000's we took another leap forward with the invention of: SD cards, flash memory, and HD DVD's
