PostSubject: What is an External Hard Drive?   Tue Dec 20, 2011 2:01 am

An external hard drive is a piece of hardware that you must buy which will act as an external drive to your computer. These drives come in different sizes but usually the sizes are quite large.

I personally do use an external hard drive as I prefer to be able to hold my backed up data physically rather than having it on a computer.

The usual steps to use an external hard drive is to simply plug and play. The hard drives come with USB connections and when they have been plugged into the system you wish to backup, you will be prompted with how to run a backup and also how to restore what is backed up. Once a backup has been created onto the external hard drive each time you plug the hard drive in, that backup will be updated with any new files that have been saved your backed up disc.

If you require any advice or recommendations on external hard drives, you can either post her or send me a private message to my account.
