    MFM – modified frequency modulation

    Abbreviation of modified frequency modulation, an encoding scheme used by PC floppy disk drives and older hard drives. A competing scheme, known as RLL (run length limited), produces faster data access speeds and can increase a disk’s storage capacity by up to 50 percent. RLL is used on most newer hard drives.
