I have a ABB robot IRB6000 controller S3. And I have a problem with memory space. I Have a communicate memory space its to low. And its possible mounted a external memory or change factory memory to large?  How I can make a backup in the floppy disc?

Unlike the S2 and S4 and newer, the S3 CPU has a set amount of memory built-in and set decoding of that memory.  You will need to utilize the disk drive to store some programs.  Each of the 7 blocks on the floppy can store the entire set of programs in memory.  The 8th block is hidden and stores the parameters.
My mentor taught me many, many years ago to save an extra copy at a known good point in programming in a block labelled 911.  Saved me a few times.
I did see a Winchester disk drive about 20 years ago that was dead, never got the chance to see a working one.  It was hard drive that acted like a very big floppy.
You may also look at saving memory by taking redundancies that many programs share, put them in their own program(s) and use calls to save some memory space.  Done that a few times for customers.
