Refined Storage is a mod that was put together very quickly as Applied energistics had not updated to 1.10.2. As such it is riddled with bugs. While we are not going to ban it be aware that it CAN cause problems sometimes. Occasionally drives go missing or networks cause a lot of lag and have to be turned off by staff. Please note that due to the nature of this and the fact that we have given warning in advance, we cannot spawn in anything that goes missing in this way. It is FAR too time consuming unfortunately. RFTools has a very nice storage system with the storage scanner and RFTools control extends what can be done with it. Autocrafting, automatic processing in machines and stuff. It is a little complex because you have to programme it yourself (drag and drop) but worth trying something new! Storage drawers are a very stable way to store items and work together with RFTools storage scanners to put stuff in and pull stuff out of them! Crates from actually additions store a large amount of items too and again, work with the storage scanner.
