With the competitive prices and availability of larger capacity Solid State Drives (SSD), the traditional Hard Disk Drive (HDD) appears to be getting obsolete in our recent PC configurations. However, the HDD is still able to hold some real estate in our PCs. Their read and write speeds may be slower, but their low prices and large capacities make them suitable for use as secondary storage.
Today we continue our weekly Friday series on the PC component that may be more valuable than it appears to be, as it stores our important backups and data files – the HDD.
