Good morning everyone and welcome to my Midweek Wednesday IT help and advice blog.


Today I'm talking about Where can I store my stuff?


We all now how important it is to keep all our stuff safe and how sometimes we run out of storage on our computers. So today I'm talking about how and where you can store your stuff to when this happens.


There are numerous ways that you can store all your stuff to and I'm going to go through these below.


Ways to store my stuff:


  1. External Hard Drive

  2. Google Drive/Google Photos

  3. Flash Drive

  4. Cd's - Data Disk

  5. YouTube

I'm going to talk through each one below to give you more information and ideas on these particular items.


External Hard Drive:


An external hard drive is a good way of increasing your storage space as you can drag and drop items in and out of it as you need access to it. This is probably one of the best ways of storing your items.


By having an external Hard Drive you can have easy access to all your files, photos and documents as and when you need them. For information on how much you can store please check out my Bit, Bytes, Kilobytes, Megabytes, Gigabyte and Terabytes blog as this will give you more information on sizes of things and what the equivalent amount of items are.


To purchase an external hard drive you can go to lots of different places itself. So you can look at amazon, Argos, eBay, novatech, Tesco's (the big stores) or Curry's/Pc world.


These external hard drive come in lots of different sizes and depending how much information you have will depend on the size I'd suggest to get.


One thing to remember if your getting an external hard drive for a MacBook you need to make sure its compatible with MacBook as not all of them are compatible as the software is different,


Here's some ideal ones to get. Click the link to go to the website to take a look at the Hard Drive I'm suggesting.
