DIFFERENT PARTS OF A COMPUTER

COMPUTER MISSION IMPOSSIBLE

HARD DRIVE

Your computer's hard disk drive stores information on a hard disk, a rigid platter or stack of platters with a magnetic surface. Because hard disks can hold massive amounts of information, they usually serve as your computer's primary means of storage, holding almost all of your programs and files. The hard disk drive is normally located inside the system unit.

FLOOPY DISK DRIVE

Floppy disk drives store information on floppy disks, also called floppies ordiskettes. Compared to CDs and DVDs, floppy disks can store only a small amount of data. They also retrieve information more slowly and are more prone to damage. For these reasons, floppy disk drives are less popular than they used to be, although some computers still include them.
