AJAR.id – Hello Ajarian! It is somewhat necessary that a business establishment maintains its data storage regularly or by schedule. It is also important that you learn to file documents in accordance with enterprise procedures.
Most data is stored on a computer’s hard drive. It is important to understand a computer’s file management system in order to save work in the right place. Data is stored in folders (or directories) and sub-folders (or sub-directories), similar to a paper-based filing cabinet.
Other than on the hard drive, data may also be stored on:
- USB memory sticks;
- External hard drives: important in case of computer failure to safeguard large amounts of information;
- CD Roms: remember that a limited amount of information can be stored here, so it is a good idea to compress the file to accommodate large amounts of data. They are becoming obsolete, in favour of the above.
