What Is an External Hard Drive?

An external hard drive is a storage device located outside of a computer that is connected through a USB cable or wireless connection. An external hard drive is usually used to store media that a user needs to be portable, for backups, and when the internal drive of the computer is already at its full memory capacity. These devices have a high storage capacity compared to flash drives and are mostly used for backing up numerous computer files or serving as a network drive to store shared content.

External hard drives are also known as removable hard drives.

Buying an External Hard Drive

 

Just like with internal hard drives, external hard drives come in all shapes and sizes, so they're also available in many different prices. Knowing what kind of external hard drive to buy can get confusing quickly if all you see are rectangles with seemingly random GB and TB numbers.

You need to first identify what you'll use the hard drive for. This is referring to both the environment you'll use it in and the stuff you'll put on it.
Some external hard drives are built for people who might drop the drive or spill something on it, and others are meant more for sitting on a desk, inside and away from the weather. If you need a versatile external hard drive, look for one that's advertised as rugged or waterproof.
Another thing to think about is how much storage space you'll need. If you'll be keeping lots of HD videos on it, you need to get something with a lot more storage capacity than an external drive that'll just be used for hoarding documents for school.
Here's a general guideline you can follow, depending on what you'll be storing on the external HDD, to know how much space you might need:
  • Documents: Under 80 GB
  • Music: 80–120 GB
  • Software: 120–320 GB
  • Videos: 320 GB to 1 TB
  • 4K or HD videos: 1–2 TB or more
