Hi Fred,As far as I know, Google is promoting the Cloud for data storage. That, and cost decisions leave us N7 owners without external USB storage. Sorry, but that's how it is unless you're willing to root your N7.I followed the step-by-step rooting instructions here, and didn't find it too daunting, but I can certainly understand your reluctance to try it on your own purchase. It takes a certain level of computer knowledge and confidence to walk the rooting path. If it helps you, we're a community here willing to help you.
Possibly, since I wrote the "Guide to Rooting", I could be considered the advocate of root, but let me advise you to take the time to learn your device and read our step by step guide and then decide if you want to root your Nexus 7. I felt the same when I rooted my first generation HTC Incredible, but I have never looked back, after seeing the advantages of root. With that said the decision to root remains with the individual and a small percentage of actual Android users take advantage of rooting.
