the basics

A hard drive is a device used to store information. there are two different types of hard drives the newer hard drive SSD and the older hard drive HDD, the only problem with the HHD is that it tends to get very hot and over heats so it needs a fan. the SSD however is more compact which you sometimes have at the back of TV's .

the SSD has no moving parts like a memory stick and the information is stored in microchips. where as the HDD uses a mechanical arm with a head to read information on the disk. this is why the SSD is much faster
