Backup Software / Backup Terms Glossary / Storage Media / Fixed Storage
Fixed storage is an internal media used by a computer to store data, and usually referred to as the Fixed Disks or Hard Drives.
Fixed storage devices obviously can be removed from the system for repair, maintenance, upgrade etc.
But generally this cannot be done without a toolkit to open up the system for physical access by an engineer.
Techically, almost all data processing on a computer are stored on some built-in fixed storage device.
The term is used mainly to differentiate these items from removable storage media (such as stream tapes, floppy diskettes, CDs, or from network-attached devices, like NAS storages, FTP etc.)
So these devices are both most hard-labouring and most vulnerable of all data storage uints in the particular infrastructure. These units must be backed up regularly to avoid crucial data losses.
