I am pretty much amateur on storing documents .I need to store large number of word files and other files (not clouds).What is best method ?
i have not used anything beside flashdrive and cloud so far.
A couple of external hard drives are worth considering. You need two so that you always have a back up. That's my storage and backup strategy, has been for the past 10 years. I actually have 4 external hard drives all containing identical data, one of them a portable model.
I would recommend an internal hard drive for storage, because internal drives are generally more reliable and trouble free. I would also get an external hard drive to back up the data stored on the internal drive.
