(Before It's News)

HDDs are classified into different categories such as digital, magnetic, non-volatile, random access, and data storage devices. There are two types of HDDs: internal HDDs and external hard disks. An internal HDD is an HDD that resides inside a computer and stores user’s software and personal files. An external hard disk resides outside a computer, and it is used when the internal hard disk drive memory of a computer is not sufficient.
An external hard disk is connected to a device typically through a USB and has slower data transfer rates when compared to internal HDDs, which are connected through serial advanced technology attachment (SATA). As of 2016, the available capacities of external hard disks range from 500 GB to 1 TB.

Publisher’s analysts forecast the global external hard disk market to grow at a CAGR of 2.9% during the period 2016-2020.
