This is a flyer about Drives in IT. There are many drives and here you can read about the two main drives.

Hard Disk Drive

It is really a set of stacked disks that have tracks on, A “head” then reads the disk and gets the information stored on it. A hard disk is a metal plate with magnetic surfaces, this type of drive is common in most personal computers, as well as other large devices that include data storage.

USB Drive

They vary from some holding large amounts of data and some only a little. They can also vary in size, but they are mostly held on a key ring. On most computers, laptops and various other devices there is a socket that you can plug a USB into. It is also known as a memory stick. It can hold lots of different documents so that they are accessable when it is inserted into another device.
