Desktop hard drives – the ultimate in capacity!
Desktop hard drives continue to be one of the best solutions for adding storage capacity to a PC whose internal drive bays or connections are maxed out. It is always easier and cheaper to add a new external hard drive rather than buy an entirely new PC simply for additional space.
Also, a desktop hard drive:
- Offers a higher memory capacity
- Allows you to schedule automatic file backups
- Has high rotational speeds for faster data transfer
High Memory Capacity
Desktop hard drives designed for home use or small businesses typically start at about 1TB of memory and go up to 3TB. As file sizes continue to increase with high-definition video, gaming files, etc., you will see larger and larger capacity drives. Many people choose to mirror the hard drive on their desktop or laptop computer. Mirroring a drive means you copy everything including software—so in the event your entire system crashes, you can re-create your computer from scratch. Desktop hard drives offer the capacity you need to mirror effectively.
Schedule Automatic Backups
Desktop hard drives hold large amounts of information and allow you to schedule regular backups automatically – that’s one less thing you have to remember. Often, a desktop hard drive features free backup software you download once and forget about! You can choose to schedule daily, weekly or monthly backups; how often you use your computer and edit files should help you determine the frequency of backups.
High Rotational Speeds
The larger the files, the longer it takes them to transfer. If you are a multimedia master, you typically work with high-definition audio, video, photo and gaming files. Moving those files brings transfer speed into play. Desktop hard drives are available in 5400 RPM and 7200 RPM models. The faster the rotational speeds, the faster you can copy data from other external sources such as cameras, memory cards and more.Verbatim desktop hard drives come in high capacities that deliver outstanding quality, performance and reliability.
