Save file in disc plugin will allow to save any uploaded file in disc drive instead of database. It will save lot of space on database.
The recommended method for saving a file from a database to a server is to use a file system. This is because it is more efficient and scalable than using a BLOB (binary large object) data type. When you use a file system, the database only needs to store the path to the file, which is a relatively small amount of data. The file itself is stored on the server's file system, which is designed to store large amounts of data efficiently.
There are several reasons why you might want to save a file in disc:
Improved performance: Saving files to disc can improve the performance of your web application. This is because the database does not need to store the file itself, which can save a significant amount of space and improve query performance.
Increased scalability: Saving files to disc also makes your web application more scalable. This is because the server's file system is designed to store large amounts of data efficiently, and it can be easily scaled up to meet the needs of your growing application.
Improved security: Saving files to disc can also improve the security of your web application. This is because the files can be stored in a secure location on the server, and they can be protected from unauthorized access.
