Filestore vs Database in Knowledge/Document management?

Are there any specific advantages to using a filestore as opposed to the default database storage in v7? We were not able to find a list of the pros and cons of one system versus the other for OpenERP specifically.

Apart from the usual invoices and such documentation, we have a lot of building plans, pictures etc. that need to get filed away sensibly.

Any insight would be very helpful.

Thank you.

For system backup: I prefer file system storage to keep my database size smaller. so able to have daily backups to outside locations easily.

since my stored files are not changing very often. So I backup my files every week and have a different backup strategy.

For file security I think database backup is better.

Thanks for this, we will have a lot of documentation so we will implement filestore.
