ANSWER: There are many types of 'fax' machines. Electronic faxing is easy with pc or laptop using fac software. Smartphone apps are available as well. In these cases storage is just using the existing HD (HardDisc) drive.
For dedicated machine there are many already in the marketplace with built in USB port which allows for external storage.
Best to you.

Yes. For document storage and handling centers who has a large customer database would find large external memory banks of great utility. Many of them use stand-alone document processing centers with software availing client search and retrieve document of interest - as an example.
There are many document storage agencies that receive handwritten documents for long term storage and retrieval. Think of city tax office, government auto vehicle agencies, etc.
