Buffer The amount of data a drive can store for quick, temporary access. The larger the buffer size, the easier it is to access documents and programs that are opened often. Commonly used in hard drives, CD drives, and DVD drives. Non-volatile memory contained in some timers & printers. Allows storage of received information until requested by the user at a later time (to conserve paper, etc). NOTE: buffer memory is normally erased when the timer or printer is turned off, and cannot be retrieved.
