Hard Drive: The Hard Facts

The hard drive is the essence of any computer. Sorta like the TV is to a den. In tech terms, the hard drive refers to the primary component of a computer that stores all permanent data and system programs. It is called the “Hard Drive” or “Hard Disk” because it is made up of one or more hard disks sealed inside an airtight casing. Hard drives are primarily positioned inside the computer. However, you can purchase external hard drives like the Fantom Premier 80GB USB 2.0 External Hard Drives for extra data storage space.
