Determine where to save the document.
When saving a document, you must decide which storage medium to use.
If you always work on the same computer and have no need to transport your projects to
a different location, then your computer’s hard disk will suffi ce as a storage location. It
is a good idea, however, to save a backup copy of your projects on a separate medium in
case the fi le becomes corrupted or the computer’s hard disk fails.
If you plan to work on your projects in various locations or on multiple computers, then
you should save your projects on a portable medium, such as a USB fl ash drive or CD. The
projects in this topic use a USB fl ash drive, which saves fi les quickly and reliably and can
be reused. CDs are easily portable and serve as good backups for the fi nal versions of
projects because they generally can save fi les only one time.
