Upgrade Your Computer with an External Hard Drive

When you run out of storage space on your hard drive it doesn’t mean that it is time for a new computer. When you need to transport large amounts of information you don’t have to burn a stack of CDs that get out of order and require extra time to access. An external hard drive is portable and can implement your computer by a terabyte. They work for both PC and Mac, desktop and laptop. Every computer of any size can accommodate at least one portable hard drive. And some systems that have multiple ports can have several of them.

External HDD

There are several types of external hard drives. The desktop model requires a separate power adapter and though it can be transported from place to place, is designed to be on top of a desk where it has access to power.

Drives for laptops are designed to draw power through the connector cable whether it is plugged in or running on battery power. These "pocket drives" are small enough that they fit into the palm of your hand or in your pocket, purse, or briefcase. Some are so small you can stuff it into your pants pocket.
