Today I found old storage medias from 1990s.
5' Floppy disks which can store only 1MB and QIC150 Tape cartridge which can store only 150MB ... now, SD card on my finger can store 32GB!

Evolution. :D Still remember those floppy disks that never worked when you had something important stored on them. :P
Yeah, I remember those too. Especially - their tremendous size of 1.44MB. I still have a floppy drive inside my PC. 😉
Yeah, but as far as I remember the smaller ones had capacity of 1.44 MB. These 5,25'' were even smaller (about 750-800 kB)
Yeah, I was talking about those smaller ones. "This. Is. Floppy!"
Oh wow, a Smalltalk/V floppy. I just loved programming in Smalltalk/V back in the 90s (still have the user manual)! So much so that I still program professionally now in Pharo Smalltalk 😁 Your floppy also reminds me of my first Corvus hard disk on my first Macintosh 512k that had a whopping...5MB....and cost something like 3000$. Would just about store a single tookapic jpeg :)
The only thing I see that lacks is a VHS tape ;)
But still, the most reliable storage is magnetic tape as far as I know. And of course right now you can buy magnetic tapes with a lot more storage space.
