    There are very big differences. Provide some context please. VTC as too broad. – πάντα ῥεῖ Sep 3 '19 at 11:01

speichern:
It is like saving something. For example you wrote something important in word and you want to work on it later.

Kannst du das Bild bitte speichern und mir senden?

lagern:
Here it is like a physical object that you stow somewhere. Like a wine in a cellar.

Kann ich das bei dir im Keller lagern?

sichern:
Sichern has many meanings. For example, a police officer who secures a territory (the word on german is now absichern). Or protect from a danger (sicher machen).

  • in Duden it says speichern can also mean lagern, is that correct? – Archelt Sep 3 '19 at 11:52
  • @Archelt as the duden said you can use the word speichern as synonym for the word lagern. – poisnInANutshell Sep 3 '19 at 12:02
  • thx so much brother – Archelt Sep 3 '19 at 12:03
  • @Archelt no problem :) – poisnInANutshell Sep 3 '19 at 12:04
  • No you can't you it synonymously. "Bei mir speichert Wein im Keller." is plain wrong. – infinitezero Sep 6 '19 at 0:43
