What is a computer hard disk drive?
A computer hard disk drive is a piece of hardware which is a storage media device used for storing and retrieving digital information and files. It does this using rapidly rotating disks coated with magnetic material.

You do it by creating partitions on your hard drives. Partitions are typically created before the hard drive is formatted. Another option is to use a program like Partition Ma…gic to edit partitions on your hard drive. You generally don't want to play around with your partitions too much after you have your OS up and running. Any error may cause you to have to reinstall everything.
IDE HARD DISK. SCSI HARD DISK. SATA HARD DISK. EXTERNAL HARDDISK.. IT IS ALSO DIFFER BY RPM SPEED FOR THE HADD.
You have been infected by a virus. Update your antivirus and scan it. On the other hand use the tool below, it will no doubt fix your problem.
Well you look at the ROM and then you look at the megabites to see how many there are and compare it to the RAM.
Hard drives, removable disks, and CDs are ways of storinginformation for computers. They make the process of backup up ormoving data from a computer much easier.
\nNo. A bigger hard disk drive does not usually mean a faster computer. It only means that your computer can hold more data before it crashes. The speed of your central proces…sing unit sometimes called your chip mainly determines the speed of your computer. While other factors enter in, it remains the main reason.
first of all good day, my answer in that question is simple. The computer recognized the hard disk drive as a normal. he can be a slave nor a master. thank very much,… that is only my opinion.
Yes. You can typically buy an adapter at your local Best Buy or other electronics store to use to connect the drive to your computer via USB.
If you have an older computer and a knew disk
The Hard Disk Drive, or HDD, is typically the main storage device for most computers. The operating system (such as Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux), games, programs and applica…tions, music, movies, etc. are all typically stored on the Hard Drive. Usually, the HDD is the largest storage device attached to a computer. HDDs may be singular or plural- a PC can have many HDDs, but most only have 1. They can also be internal (inside the PC) or external (attached by USB, eSATA, or Firewire). Some may not be attached at all, as wireless HDDs do exist.
Partially. The answer is a little complicated as what a computerdoes is governed by a combination of hardware, firmware, andsoftware. Typically the Operating System or Boot C…ode can be stored on a harddisk drive, so in this way the hard drive tells the computer whatto do. However, there are computers that do not have hard drives or runfrom removable media. In that case the operating system is not runfrom the hard drive.
You create a directory, then get a big thing where you save your stuff onto, then save all you want onto it. Then wait for the hardrive and follow the instructions from there!… Hope this helped:D

No, not at all. Despite the hard drive being old school IDE or SATA, the computer will recognize it as a new storage deice. Note for the older IDE hard drives, if you desire t…o install more than one, you will have to use jumpers.
a hard disk drive is typically an electro-magnetic device which is used as a secondary storage in many computers. Compared to primary memory, HDDs own a huge data capacity but… works slower than other memory devices. Since the technology is not so much advanced like a fast RAM storage, HDDs are low in price and it works as a trade off between cost and performance. (i.e. a part of the concept of memory hierarchy) nowadays, HDDs are available at very high data capacity in the range of TBs for PCs. but still they are far better in price compared to a RAM of the same size. - Tharindu Rusira
I'm not sure where it is? But there is a small amount of gold and silver in a computer tower. I just learned that in my computer class just not exactly where at in the compute…r tower. It's only like $5 to $25, but it might be more now because the price of gold is much higher these days.
Rub a magnet on the hard drive, this should clean it.
