External Hard Disk Drives: Solution to Storing Data

What is the external hard disk drive?

Hard drives, also known as hard disk drives (HDDs) were a technology thought up by IBM- and they dominated the market for nearly 30 years.

An external drive is just a hard drive (HDD) or solid-state drive (SSD) that is connected to a computer on the outside rather than on the inside.

This means that an external hard drive is as an internal hard drive that has been removed, covered in its own protective casing, and plugged into the outside of your computer.

History of HDD

  • 1953 - People discovered that they need a type of technology that can give extra storage.
  • 1956 - The company IBM in San Jose, California, invented and patented the very first hard drive. IBM engineer Reynold B. Johnson is the individual who came up with the idea and named it the IBM 350 Disk File, which supported the IBM 305 RAMAC computer system.

  • 1983 - Apple introduced the ProFile external hard drive.
  • 1994 - Universal Serial Bus, or USB, technology was introduced.
  • The 2000s onward - The HDD industry has suffered quite a decline as more options such as the USB and cloud made it into the market. Most of the purchases for HDD are now most likely related to computer gaming, wherein gamers need more storage to make their games faster and without lags.

How does this technology work?

HDD records data by magnetizing a thin film of ferromagnetic material on both sides of a disk. Sequential changes in the course of magnetization characterize binary data bits. The information is read from the disk by distinguishing the transitions in magnetization. User data is programmed using an encoding scheme, such as run-length limited encoding, which regulates how the data is represented by the magnetic transitions.

What capacity should I look into purchasing?

Before looking into what capacity fits your needs, it is important to know that the capacity is smaller than the amount stated by the manufacturer. For example, if you buy 1TB, you will not get exactly 1TB of unused storage. Why is that? The operating system uses some space for data redundancy, and for file system structures. Another thing is you need to first identify what you will use the hard drive for.

Knowing how much storage needed for certain data is also helpful and determining how much capacity you will need. Here is a guideline:

  • Documents: Under 80GB
  • Music: 80GB - 120GB
  • Software: 120GB - 320GB
  • Videos: 320GB to 1TB
  • 4K or HD videos: 1TB - 2TB or more

What are the external hard drive capacities available in the market?

The available capacities are 500GB, 1TB, 1.5TB, 2TB, 3TB, 4TB, 5TB, 6TB, 8TB, 10TB.

Do I need to consider anything else when buying one?

Yes, you need to consider the drive interface. Here are some drive interfaces available in external hard drives.

  • USB
  • USB 2.0
  • USB 3.0
  • USB 3.1 Gen1
  • USB 3.1 Gen2
  • Wi-Fi
  • SATA
  • HDMI
  • Thunderbolt 3
  • Thunderbolt 6
  • FireWire 800
  • Ethernet (RJ-45)

What brands should I look into?

Some of the most famous brands of external hard drive disks are Toshiba, Case Logic, Dell, ASUS, Microsoft, SEAGATE, Transcend, Sony, Samsung, Lenovo, Apple, and Hitachi. If you are not particular on the brand, you have tons of Chinese OEM brands to choose from.

Any other things I should consider when buying?

Yes, there are a couple of things that can make your purchase choices wiser.

1. Rotation speed (54000 revolutions per min. or 7200 revolutions per min.)
2. The power source (USB port, AC adapter, Plug-in, or eSATA bus)
3. Features (data encryption, Internet of Things compatible, plug-in or memory card slot)
4. Max data transfer rate
5. Form factor (2.5 inches or 3.5 inches)


In the earlier days, the main concern was not having enough storage for files for big companies but now, even normal people can get themselves an external hard drive to add space the laptop hard drive back up photos, music, documents, and videos.
