Hard disk is considered as the reliable storage device to store and manage large volume of data. Is there any other effective way for data storage?
Guys please help me with your replies.

You can even take backup of your data online. This give high security and protection to your stored data. Data stored online make you able to retrieve lost data whenever you required.
Try online data backup services to keep your data safe.

Hard drive storage can be $.08US per GB. In 1995 the cost for a 1GB HDD was about $850US.

Blu-ray is another option at a cost of $.12 per GB. If the data is important, make several copies and keep them in disparate locations.

If you want to store small amount of data, you can use pendrive, CDs. But make sure to place these storage medias at safe place and with great care to avoid any kind of theft.

you should use several backup options...like a separate internal HD (NOT ANOTHER PARTITION ON THE original drive) or a external HD...AND burn the data to dvds...best practice is to do all three...
remember this....ANY DATA THAT YOU DON'T HAVE 2 COPIES OF IS DATA YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT...
