What is a storage device and how to use it?

A storage device may also be known as a storage medium or storage media, digital storage, etc. which is used for storing, porting and extracting data files and objects. There are two types of storage devices used with computers: a primary storage device, such as RAM, and a secondary storage device, like a hard drive. Secondary storage can be hard drive, removable, internal, or external storage.

Primary storage device

A primary storage device is quite smaller in size and it’s designed to capture or hold data for a temporary period. Most primary storage devices are found inside the computer, and they have the fastest access to data.

Example:
– RAM

Secondary storage device

A secondary storage device has a larger storage capacity and can store data permanently. They include the hard disk, optical disk drive and external storage device.
