How a computer works
A drive is a storage device that holds your saved work and files. It also holds things like windows,which then enables your computer to work.
There are a few types of drive like a hard drive, an optical drive and a solid state drive.
A hard drive is the most common drive in computers.
A optical drive is a disc drive which uses a laser to read the disc.
A solid state drive is what you would find in an ipad or a smart phone. This is what makes them work so fast.
