Storage Devices June 11 2018

With today's devices getting smaller and smaller, the hardware inside them is also getting increasingly smaller in physical size.  Many modern devices are using a solid state hard drive, or SSD, to store your data.  While these SSD hard drives, storage space is often much smaller than with a traditional hard drive and to get a larger SSD you’d have to pay much more money.  On the upside, an SSD is more likely to last longer and can handle more bumps and movement than a traditional mechanical hard drive, and they’re incredibly light too!


Though, even an SSD can fail, meaning the potential loss of your personal data.  In some cases, people have backups of all of their information, and it pays to back it up.  Some people use an external hard drive, where the secondary hard drive is plugged into the computer using a USB cable and data is backed up to there on a regular basis.  Other people use cloud storage to protect themselves from losing everything.  In today’s society, there are many different types of cloud storage, from Google Drive to iCloud, and some of these are really easy to use!


Having a backup can save a headache in the future should something in your computer fails, and then everything can be restored and your computer will be just as it was before it broke down! Often when a computer comes into us, we find that the hard drive is the issue, either due to something installed on it going haywire or because of a mechanical fault.  In these cases, we back up the data to our large volume storage, repair the fault and then restore everything back. 

 

Even your mobile devices are able to be backed up, thanks to cloud storage as mentioned above.  As many of us know, our small electronics can fail from time to time, or maybe we get a new one and want all of our old stuff on it.  Thanks to this online storage, we can make a duplicate of everything on our much-loved device so that we can retrieve it later on.  While cloud storage in itself can cost a monthly fee for a decent amount, it doesn’t cost too much to back up the essential stuff, most often it can be free for a few GB.  With that in mind, you can at least back up your computer to a physical hard drive, such as an external hard drive, and keep that somewhere safe.  It would pay, however, to check on that drive often to ensure it’s still working well.
