What does a hard drive do?
A hard drive is hardware used for storing or backing up important files stored internally on your computer. There are two types, external portable hard drives and internal hard drives. External HDD are usually connected via USB and can hold a huge amount of data outside of your internal HDD which is located within the tower of our computer.
As well as extra space for all your photos, videos and documents, an external hard drive will provide you with additional security and peace of mind. Being able to back up your valuable data and media means it will be easy to recover in the event that your computer’s internal hard drive becomes corrupted.
What capacity are hard drives?
