MB you can save it on a floppy or if you have a CD-R, you can burn them on 100 MB. DVD-R hold even more but it would depend on what you wanted to save to another medium. I can use NERO and burn 4.7 MB on a DVD-RW, +RW
Depends on what you want. PS-RW are erasable, including CD-RW's

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
