Buy the Right Hard Disk Online and Store All Your Data Safely


You can use keywords like Toshiba hard disk, Seagate hard disk, WD My Passport hard disk, which also happen to be some of the most popular brands of hard disks. For starters, what is a hard disk? Hard disks are used for storage purposes and are highly preferred by many, when it comes to storage options. 


Interesting Facts on the Origin of Hard Disks


Did you know that the first hard disk was created by a team of engineers from IBM in the year 1953? At that point in time, the hard disk was the size of two refrigerators. IBM eventually continued the tradition of developing hard disk technology. 


Towards the turn of the millenium, companies like Seagate and Western Digital, also known as WD, had released the first 3 TB hard disk drives, followed by Toshiba which had released the first 4 TB drives. 


Constituents of a Hard DIsk Drive


If you are wondering as to what the components of a hard disk drive are, it contains a platter for storing data, an arm for reading or writing the data to be stored and also an actuator that helps in controlling the action of the arm for reading or writing the data.


The hard disk also comes with a thin, protective layer that protects it from any form of accidental damage or from the entry of foreign materials that could damage the hard disk. 


Buying the Right Hard Disk


If you are looking to buy a hard disk and are not sure how to go about with the buying process, here is what you should know.


Hard disks and SSDs (Solid State Drives) are not exactly the same. There are differences between the two, although they perform the same function. 


Storage capacity


Since the main purpose of a hard disk drive is storage, you need to choose one based on your storage capacity requirements. 


Transfer Speed


The efficiency of a hard disk is measured in terms of revolutions per minute (RPM). The higher the RPMS are, the faster will be the transfer process.


Cache Space


You might have heard of cache, thanks to smartphones. The cache space refers to the buffer storage space for storing extra data.


While looking for an external hard disk, look for models like the Samsung T5 500 GB USB 3.1 portable SSD or the WD Elements 4 TB portable external HDD. 


Difference Between External Hard Drives and Internal Hard Drives


You can definitely not go for hard disk shopping, without understanding the difference between external and internal hard disk drives. External hard disks are mostly used for data storage, backup and transfer processes. Internal hard disk refers to the storage space available inside the system, be it a computer or a laptop. 


Tips to Maintain Your Hard Disk Drive


It is important to maintain your hard drive properly so as to use it for a longer period of time. Make sure that it is not exposed to physical damage. Also, make sure that they do not get heated up excessively. Frequently shutting down your system and rebooting the same can lead to the hard disk’s damage as well.
