How Much Do You Know About External Hard Drives?
If you use your computer as a primary source of entertainment, you may
soon find it clogged up with space-hungry downloads and large
multimedia files. Why not get an external hard drive? That way you can
easily backup your photos, videos and music to a larger storage device
and open up more space on your computer's main hard drive.
Generally, external hard drives come in three main sizes (physical
size): 1.8'', 2.5'', and 3.5''. The 1.8'' drives are the smallest and
the more expensive; the 2.5'' drives are portable and are the same as
you would find in a laptop computer; and the 3.5'' drives feature
massive storage capacity and faster transfer rates even though they
are bigger and require external power supply.
Always remember that power supply plays a key role in external hard
drives' performance and stability. An insufficient power supply will
tend to lead to system instability, speed decrease and even data
loss—things you don't want to happen with your computer. The 1.8'' and
2.5'' external hard drives usually come with a Y-shaped USB cable to
extract power from two USB ports, so that there will be enough power
to spin up the drive.
Besides, hard drives can be extremely fragile, and things like
excessive vibration or sudden jolts can cause mechanical parts inside
a hard drive to fail, potentially resulting in massive data loss.
Therefore, you should always remove your drive safely by using the
''Safely Remove Hardware'' feature. The drive will then gently power
itself down after you stopped the hardware.
Memory is priceless. That's why you should backup most important files
to prevent them from disappearing forever, and that’s exactly what an
external hard drive can do for you.
