both of them are random access memories
Overall, a secondary hard drive works the same as a primary hard drive. In the case of PATA drives, the secondary hard drive operates as a "slave" drive. It disables its controller and lets the primary hard drive control it. This is determined by jumper settings on both drives and/or the cable position.While SATA drives are modeled after PATA drives, SATA drives operate on independent channels, and thus every SATA drive is a "master" drive. Their order or addressing are all dependent upon which socket they are plugged into.
Hard drive access time is usually measure in milliseconds or thousandths of a second. A typical hard drive is rated between 4 and 8 Ms.
Hard drives can make a big difference in computer performance. Consider a solid-state drive if you need quick drive access.
Most laptops support only one internal hard drive. Some support a second hard drive in a removable bay.
There are typically two types of hard drives. The first is the internal hard drive which runs the computer or other technological devices. The second is an external model that does the same thing.
For today's hard drives, the hard drive controller is firmware on a circuit board on or inside the drive housing.
When you partition a hard drive into two or more partitions (storage areas) those extra drives are called logical drives. So you can have 2 or 3 or more logical drives on one physical hard drive. It varies.
MSDOS and Microsoft Windows identifies drives by single letters (many other operating system allow drives to be named with words or phrases):drive A the first internal floppy diskette drive (usually not used anymore)drive B the second internal floppy diskette drive (usually not used anymore)drive C the first internal hard disk drivedrives D through Z additional drives, may be internal or external, hard disk drives or optical drives, etc.
Default drive letter for a hard drive is C On my computer there were two hard drives installed, and the second was D CD drive is E USB ports are F, G, H, I, J, and K on mine
You have no hard drives listed. You have the ability to assign any drive letter (except the Main 'C' ) to your hard drives using "Computer Management"
external hard drives
RAID 1 hi
no a hard drive has a much faster access time...
drive is the partition on your hard disk - c:, d: etc are examples. softwares & files are stored in directories which are stored inside the drives of a hard disk. the hard disk is physical, partitions / drives as they are commonly called are virtual bifurcations on your physical drive, where softwares of files are stored in directories for ease of access to particular information.
Hard drives in external disk drives are simply standard drives so it is possible to unscew them and put them in a pc. However it would be easier to buy a standard internal drive and copy the data across
a hard drive is what stores all the files on your pc.
Hewlett-Packard Development Company or HP makes several models of hard drives. The type of hard drive depends on the usage. HP makes SAS Hard Drives which is a middle of the road drive. HP also produces the SATA Hard Drive which is an entry level drive and the HP Solid State Drive which is meant for unrestricted workload applications.
Computer drives can include:An internal hard driveSometimes, a "slave" drive which is a second internal drive or a partition on the primary hard driveExternal Drives consist of:floppy disk driveCD driveDVD drive (the CD/DVD are usually one drive)External Desk Drive - a unit that connects by USB Cable to the computer and acts as a secondary drive; often used for storage.A "thumb" or stick drive - inserts into a USB port and used for storage.
The purpose of SCSI hard drives are to exchange information between separate computers. Whereas, EIDE hard drives addresses a computers interface between its individual hard drive and its storage disks.
Hard drive, Disk drive and FLoppy disk drive
If you mean Internal Hard Driver VS. External Hard Drive, it's speed. Internal Hard Drives are faster. External Hard Drives are only as fast as the USB connection is.
External Hard drives Can be a good investment. There are site you can save you re data to on-line ad for free. But when it comes to having a way to transport and having a physical back up of the files and programs on the computer, it is worth while to purchase an external hard drive. This also allows on certain hard drives to be able to access the hard drive at remote computers and using you're own information by booting the computer on you're hard drive.
Many memory drives.
