5. Storage device
Once data has been entered into a computer and processed, it needs to be stored. It may only need to be stored temporarily, i.e. whilst it is being used or it might need to be stored permanently so that it is available for use at a later date.
A storage device is any media which is used to store data. For example, the photo opposite shows the platters and reading head inside a hard disk.
Examples of storage devices include:
- hard disk
- magnetic tape
- flash memory (USB memory sticks)
