Tech Talk – External Hard Drive
Multimedia files â€“ especially uncompressed video files â€“ can take up a lot of hard drive space on a computer, and many users quickly exceed the space on their internal hard drive. An external drive is an easy way to increase hard-drive space without installing a new internal hard drive. An external drive can also be used as a backup drive in case your computer’s drive becomes corrupted or unstable. Reviewers uniformly recommend that users back up their computers â€“ or at least their most important files â€“ at least once a week. Backing up data to multiple CDs or DVDs can be cumbersome, often requiring several discs, but an external hard drive can hold much more data.
