A hard copy is a type of printed document. It can be a text file , photograph, drawing, or some other type of printable file.
For example, in place of e-mailing a business memo, you can send it as a hard copy, or an actual physical paper containing the memo.
When a document is created on a computer, it is typically saved as a file in the computer’s hard drive . This is done as a soft copy refer.
While a Soft Copy can be easily opened and edited in a computer , it can also be easily deleted. At the same time a hard copy is printed so that a physical backup of that document can be made.
