It's not upside-down either on my PC.
I'm glad we don't use diskettes any longer by the way.

It's a floppy disc because that's what computers had at that time (1992), it's a dinosaur technology compared to flash drives now.

In the symbol for the act of saving, the metal cover is always down (Microsoft Office 2000 and others sharing the basic 16 color design such as IrfanView; Sound Forge 7, Reaper v2, PDFXchange Viewer). Only the icon for Total Commander is in the correct orientation, but it does not represent saving.
I remember that audio cassetes could have the labels wrong way around too. In cheap machines the casette would go with the openings up, and in more expensive ones it would go with the openings facing down, pushing down on the heads.
I still have a floppy drive in my computer. Modern programs frequently buzz it, when they attempt to read contents or extract volume label off all drives without exception.
