  • 3. FILE STORAGE• Just like things in the real world, computer files need space in which to be stored. There are a few different places in the computer where you can store files. The most common of these is the hard drive, which is the area inside the computer for holding data. Essentially, all programs and support files will be located on your hard drive.• However, you might choose to put your own files someplace else. For example, you should already have a Flash drive to hold some of your work. The hard drive can store hundreds of times the amount of information that a Flash drive can store, but the Flash drive is a useful tool nonetheless.• Similar to a Flash drive, you might also choose to store your work to a compact disc or a floppy disk.
