The wonders of modern technology allow us to store tons of movies, photos, songs, and even novels in the same physical space as a paperback book (or even less). Despite this, we still have storage problems. What kind of storage do you need? If your PC is running out of space, it may be time to invest in some external storage. Keep reading as we discuss the pros and cons of the various available external storage solutions.
If you are sitting here, reading this piece then the odds are that you have a storage problem. It is either here or it is on the horizon.
You need to get yourself some storage, and not the kind that you can get by renting a U-Haul and paying the deposit on the storage place down the highway. You have a storage issue that can only be solved by getting yourself some external memory for your computer.
Why would I need to get external memory?
This is a solid question with which to start. There are a few reasons you may want to have external memory on hand:
You need to be able to move your files, especially your large files, with ease and without having to email them.
You think that your computer is going to be making its way to electronics heaven soon, and you do not want to suffer the heartbreak of losing all of your files on the day that it crashes.
Your files are taking up so much room that you are sure that they will soon cause you to experience a loss of performance from your machine because of the extra files on its hard drive. Or you may even already be seeing your system respond more slowly than you'd like.
You have multiple PCs in your house on which you want to use the same files -- for example, the songs in your iTunes library -- but don't want to store them on every machine.
You want to keep your files private and away from the prying eyes of the other people who use your computers. After all, your eight-year-old child doesn't really need access to your clients' files, does he?
There are certainly other reasons, but those are some of the most common. If you see your situation on that list (and you may have more than one of these issues in your life), you have a good reason to get yourself some kind of external memory storage to keep your files safe. What kind of choices do you have for this?
You actually have a surprising number of choices for your "mode of memory," so in order to keep you sane, let's go down each of the options and talk about what is good and what is bad about it.
