Our storage needs are growing every day. Photos, videos, documents…we are all getting and keeping more, and that’s why Jeff Carlson wrote Take Control of Your Digital Storage. From hard drives to SSDs, NAS to RAID, iCloud to Dropbox, Jeff helps us understand how it all works, and what you need. We talk to him about the benefits of network attached storage, Apple’s built-in functions to help offload documents to the cloud, and why some types of RAID shouldn’t be considered backups.
