What is a Hard Drive?
A Hard Drive (HDD – Hard Disk Drive) is the main data storage device used with a Personal Computer. The Hard Drive stores all the programmes, applications and documents used by the computer including the operating system and, as such, requires a large capacity usually in excess of 1TB, though many PCs are supplied with a stock 500GB Hard Drive.
