Physical storage, commonly known as local storage, involves saving files on local servers or devices (such as hard disk drives (HDDs), solid-state drives (SSDs), and USB flash drives) that are directly controlled and operated by users. HDDs use magnetic storage with rotating disks to read and write data, while SSDs have no moving parts and use flash memory for faster data access. Other physical storage methods include optical disks such as CDs and DVDs, and magnetic tapes, which, despite their age, are still used for large-scale data archiving due to their large capacity and long lifespan. Each storage method has different advantages in terms of speed, capacity, cost, and durability, and can meet various data storage needs. Physical storage devices are essential components of computer systems used for retention and retrieval of digital data. Each type of storage has its own distinct advantages and disadvantages, resulting in their use in various applications.
