Ensure your data is backed up with computer drives, storage and blank media

There’s no debating the fact data storage is critical in the digital age. Not only do our busy, connected lifestyles necessitate the immediate availability of more and more storage space, but we also need that storage space to be extremely safe and secure. Away from the Cloud, the physical devices we use to hold onto all types of data must be smaller than ever to enable greater portability and direct access to that valuable information.

Fortunately, you can take advantage of various computer drives, storage and blank media such as CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray discs, to store and protect all those files, documents, images, videos, software and any other precious data you definitely can’t afford to lose.

Hard drives & flash drives

When it comes to backing up or transferring megabytes, gigabytes and even terabytes of important data from another device, such as a PC or laptop, hard drives and USB flash drives hold the key. Hard drives are available in three main formats: internal and external hard disk drives (HDD), solid state drives (SSD) and network-attached storage (NAS). 

This type of hardware is effectively designed to offer a storage solution for keeping extensive image galleries, video and movie libraries, project documentation, and essential software programs that take up large amounts of space.

Alternatively, a USB flash drive provides a handy mobile data storage solution for professionals and other people on the go. Whether you choose a USB 2.0, USB 3.0 or USB 3.1 specification memory stick with capacity ranging from 16GB through to 256GB and beyond, you will have the ability to quickly drop and drag files before going travelling or sharing the files with friends or colleagues.

Some of the top manufacturers to consider when buying digital media storage hardware and accessories are SanDisk, Samsung, Seagate, Western Digital, Toshiba, Kingston, HP, Orico, LaCie, Crucial and Synology, which each offer their own unique products with different specs and features.
