Hey there guys Attic PC Guy here and today we're talking about data storage Types of storage like Processor cache or RAM hold information, but are small and cant save the data when the PC is off
What we usually refer to as a PC's storage are Hard Drives (HDD), Solid State Drives (SSD) or M2 drives, which save data when not powered But what are the differences? Hard drives have actual spinning disks, and are usually slower, cheaper and bigger than other drives They can last for years but are also prone from mechanical failure from the moving parts SSD's are faster and more silent than HDDs, although they are smaller and more expensive, and last for a certain amount of write cycles
For a typical user this would be several years M2 drives plug in directly to your motherboard, unlike the other types that use a SATA Cable, and require compatible boards They can be NVME or SATA protocol, so check your manual for compatibility They are faster than even SSD's but still smaller and more costly
Having a SSD or M2 drive for your windows installation will greatly improve your system performance This is a quick run on storage types, like and subscribe if you enjoyed this content, leave comments and suggestions below, and I'll see you next time!
