Data Storage

The concept of storage devices includes two concepts. Devices are machines or systems capable of developing certain actions and accomplishing an objective (this purpose “arranges” them). Storage, in turn, is the action and effect of storing (collecting or keeping things or information/data).

Thus, mention that storage devices (peripherals) are devices that read or write data in a medium. These devices, therefore, work together with all the means. Where the archives of a computer or any other computer system are stored, logically and physically.

A hard drive is a storage device. This type of device has one or more discs that connect the common shaft and which rotate in a metal structure. Each disc contains read/write heads for working with information.

Storage devices are CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drives. These units may be just drives or be able to save the information in the appropriate format (CD or DVD). With CD-ROM and DVD-ROM devices, floppy disks have become unusable since this storage device provides, within the parameters of current technology, a very limited capacity.

Among the storage devices that have developed in recent years, memory card readers, which are part of the computer via the USB port or a plate. Memory cards are more durable than CD-ROMs and DVD-ROMs and are easier to transfer.
