The History of Hard Drives.

Hard Drives used to be restricted to a few megabytes of storage in 1980 and were slow by comparison. These first hard drives were unreliable and slow. Now there are hard drives one or two terabytes in size (a billion times larger) mounted in computers and are just as accessible as external drives. These new modern hard drives are much faster and way more reliable that the old ones in the 1980's.
