I've been digging through the InterWebs for a while, trying to find a
definitive reference for the sizes of disk drives. [2.5" can be 7mm-19mm
thick, 9.5mm now common in laptops, 15mm for servers, IIRC]

There is an Industry Standards organisation for issue the Specs and
allow free download access:

I'd expect SFF = Small Form Factor.

And if you care, this is the base spec for 2.5" drives.
[the series begin 82..]

Just so you know :-)
And anyone looking to answer the same question might find this...
