Guiding Question 6

     How does storage work, what different types of storage are there, where can one store information, and how does one prevent information from being lost? Create a backup plan that everyone should use to back-up their personal information and explain why your plan is better than any other plan.

       At one time, floppy disks were the only way to distribute software and the only way to share files between microcomputers. Now we can store data and information using a variety of different types of media including hard disk, optical discs, and solid state devices like flash memory and USB drives.  In addition, internal and external hard disks and a variety of optical discs including CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray.

     Storing information onto your computer might not always be the safest place that you think.  Instead of taking the chances of losing important personal documents and others, back it up with a safe and secure system that will never let you down.

     In the 21st Century Cloud Storage will create many benefits and advantages. In addition, very large capacity storage devices including file servers, network application servers, and RAID systems will be prevalent in the world of advance technology.  And to be competent and to be competitive in today’s professional workplace you need to know and understand these things.

Sometimes files are missing, the computer malfunctions and worst case scenario, the hard drive crashes. We all know that something like this will happen someday. When that day comes, you will be happy to know that you have all files backed up! So this week, we will be focusing on Backing Up Computer. We will introduce the concept of back up and explain the different types or computer storage devices. Just to make sure everyone know the basic information. Then, you can go ahead and take a look at the analysis for different back up plans. We are sure you can find the best one for yourself!

My data is where?

Where’d my work go?


Has this happened to you?

After hours and hours of working on a report, you finally finish, just having the computer crash!  Was a back up made? The computer gets taken in to the repairman to have them say sure they can recover the report so long as a backup was made.  Then the question gets asked, how do I do that?

Luckily with the modern computers this is rarely the case as most word processing  applications now have an auto save mode so that after a set period of minutes the computer will automatically save a temporary copy of the work that you have been working on.  However, before the modern applications, not more than 15 years ago, if the files weren’t periodically saved in the process of creating a document – all that hard work that was done in order to create a report would be lost in the process.

Ikaika will provide an introduction into the history of data storage as well as the different types of storage there is.
