What is the difference between primary & secondary storage device?..

Answer / najite

Secondary storage is actually any storage not currently in use. Even the hard drive in your computer is secondary storage, as programs such as Word or Powerpoint, are stored there when not in use as well as all of your files.
Primary storage is the memory used when the computer is using the data. For example, when you open Word all the necessary files are loaded from the hard drive to the Primary memory (or RAM) to run the program. Any files you open will also be copied to RAM to be edited, when you save these they will be written back to the hard drive.
