Storing Data

     Over the years the storage of data has evolved as the amount and type of data has changed. This article takes a look at some of the methods that are available to us today and how they are useful to us to do just that.

On A Computer Hard Drive

Computer hard drives are almost the "traditional" places for data to be stored, as they have large capacities and slot straight into your computer, meaning all you have to do is click "save" and all your work and information is backed up. However, because the date is effectively stored on your computer, if something was to happen to that computer - perhaps it is stolen or broken - then all of your information is lost.

On A Memory Stick

Memory sticks are essentially smaller hard drives that are easily detachable from your computer and therefore can be used to retrieve data in the event of a computer breakdown. However, given they are smaller versions of your computer's hard drive it is entirely likely that they won't be able to save all the data on your computer, meaning that they tend to be used for transferring data - such as a gallery of photographs or a few documents - from one device to another.

On Your IPhone

The data that we tend to store on our iPhone is often a lot less work related - although many people do use them for that purpose - and much more about personal entertainment. For example, many people have all of their music on their IPhone, or store pictures on the devices. There are some who keep whole movies on those devices but because of the smaller screen the film is more likely to be watched on an iPad. Of course, one of the issues with storing your data on an iPhone or iPad is that these devices are quite fragile and can break rather easily. Obviously nobody wants to write off the information they have stored on these devices and so it can be a really good idea to know where you can repair them cheaply and effectively should the worst happen and you lose all that information that is personal to you.

As you can see there are many ways in which we can store date these days, and in truth this article hardly scratches the surface of the topic as new ways are being developed all the time
