What Is Magnetic Storage When Talking About Photography?

When talking about photography, magnetic storage refers to a form of storage in which information is recorded on a magnetised plate within a storage device. The data is stored by applying different levels of magnetism to different areas of a magnetic plate using a write head. This information can then be read at a later time by a read head which can measure the levels of magnetism applied to the plate. Magnetic storage is non-volatile and can be found in the hard drives which you use to store your digital images. Magnetic storage is currently being superseded by newer, faster storage mediums such as solid-state storage.
