Modern times have changed the way we deal with files, records and other documents. All of the ones I have mentioned were all in paper and archived in folders or stacks of boxes in the vault of filing cabinets. The technology has changed all that.
Now, we can easily archive our important documents electronically with the use of the obsolete floppy disks, hard disks, re-writable cds/dvds and flash drive. Other companies even offer their massive servers to hold our electronic files we upload on the web.
It is amazing what technology can do to our paper-based files. It will not be long until we go paper-less and embrace the advancement of technology.
