What is SSD? What is HDD?
Those reports you created for work, the graphics for your big presentation and your favorite playlists – they’re all stored on your computer’s internal hard drive. There are two main types: SSD (Solid State Drive) and HDD (Hard Disk Drive). While an HDD may be able to hold more than an SSD, an SSD has no moving parts, resulting in faster boot-up times and less heat expenditure. While purchasing a new computer, you can choose one of these options or a hybrid hard drive that offers the best of both - maximum storage with minimal lag time.

How can I free up some space on my computer?
After a while, music, photo, video and document files can build up, and your computer’s hard drive is only capable of handling so much. When you run out of space, you can save everything worth saving to an external hard drive, keeping only the essentials on your computer.
A portable hard drive makes it easier to take the files you need on the go, while desktop hard drives are more for storing those archived files long term. If you’re in the market for a business storage solution, explore NAS (Network-Attached Storage), which can be shared by multiple users across your network, and Web-based storage drives that keep everything in the Cloud.
