Here’s nothing as frustrating as a computer virus, have you ever had that recurring computer virus that breaks the defense of your meek, free version antivirus you downloaded because you couldn’t afford to pay for the original one full year antivirus software? Your hopes may not be completely dashed, the fact is that nothing makes an external harddrive so special from the internal hard drive except its ability to be isolated and kept someplace safe rather than just being stuck inside the system, allowing a palpable virus to feed away at your files, with an external hard drive that could only be your least option.
Here’s why an external hard drive totally beats the regular internal hard drive – first is the power of isolation, another is its portability. Let’s say your workshop is at a different location, for Christ sake you will look like an over-energized geek carrying your computer’s internal hard drive all the way up to the workshop or even using your small flash drive with minimal storage space to transfer all that is in your computer to another storage device bits by bits – that’s pretty much close to filling your glass cup with little spoons of water. The external hard drive has got an impeccable portability that compares with nothing when it comes to physical size in respect to its storage capacities.
You needn’t worry about physical damage that might occur due to its easy mobility, (it’s not like our workshops are right in the centre of a battlefield) but whatever be the case, all technology tools like our mobile phones are instinctively kept off from harm’s way,but in case you happen to be uncertain, there are external hard drives that are specifically built for extremely rigorous activities, it all depends on what you desire.
