With the advancement of technology, digital original content taken by smartphones are also getting larger. Although there are cloud based solutions to store these files, they are limited in size, e.g 500GB of your cloud account. Furthermore, you have little control of your own pictures and vidoes. Imagine if the account is hacked and all your pictures and videos are gone. That will be a total disaster.
