Storage devices and gadgets that are meant to expand the storage capabilities of a device have risen to huge demands. As our lives get busier, and time is both precious and limited, we are turning towards the virtual world like nothing before. With the advent of social media, thousands of pictures get uploaded every day. Photos depict memories, and times well spent with the people we love. Thousands of such memories via photos, videos, Instagram stories and much more get saved and stored every month.
WHAT IS THE NEED OF USB PEN DRIVES?
Storing files and soft copies of every other document for future reference has become second nature. They are efficient, easy to find, do not degrade or destroy easily, and also are comfortable to store. Thousands of government offices are now turning towards e-storage as well. Movies, e-books and PDFs are being saved and shared by students rampantly. Even the apps we use on our phones and other devices generate a considerable amount of data for each and every action that we perform. It all adds up to an overwhelming amount.
All this puts us in a dire crisis for space. Not just physically (what with the hike in population growth and shortage of resources!) but virtually as well. As an average person keeps consuming free space at an alarming rate for every online action, the need for computer gadget devices arise.
