    Default hard copy vs soft copy

    I think "hard copy" is when you print out a computer file to a printer, getting a paper result, while "soft copy" is just copying your file to another device like USB, right?

    Yes. Broadly speaking, anything you read on paper is "hard copy"; anything you read on a computer screen is "soft copy".
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    Thanks a lot! Incidentally, whenever I see your photo, I wonder how you uploaded it. Could you tell me the secret to have your face seen here?
