Storage media is the hardware in which information is stored physically. Your computers need storage since the processor needs a place to perform this operation. All the computers will need storage. On a modern computer, the storage comes in two forms.
Temporary storage: Supplied as memory, or RAM. The memory is where the processor does it works. It’s the place where the information is stored and the program runs. The Random Access Memory (RAM) is the microprocessor’s playground, its den, its workshop.
• Long-term storage: This is availed by the storage media. The storage media includes flash drives, disk drives, DVDs, and CDS. The long-term storage allows information to be saved and recalled for later use. The media storage is the place where things go on when the microprocessor is not directly working on them but a place where information can be retrieved later for use.
