It used to be a common problem: running out of space on your computer's hard drive. Get involved with MP3s or video clips and your hard drive gets filled up, requiring you to either transfer the information to removeable media, like a CD-ROM, or think about purchasing an expensive and hard-to-install internal hard drive.
Now, it seems like the problem has turned around 180 degrees. Instead of not enough storage, there are so many options for increasing your computer's external storage that your time and energy need to be focused on what's the best option for you and your needs: expansion hard drive, DVD-ROM, jump drive or online.
Bottom line: There are a ton of options for expanding your computer's storage, especially externally through a USB port. Take your time and figure out which one works best for you.
