External Hard Drive
An external hard drive is a portable hard drive used primarily to back up the main hard drive and store files that are likely to be moved from computer to computer and those that take up lots of space, such as multimedia files (MP3s, photos, and streaming videos). External hard drives have their own enclosures and are connected to the CPU through the USB port. Transferring large files over USB can be quite complicated because Windows sometimes has a tendency to freeze and become unresponsive, usually a result of your hard drive not working properly. It is important that your external hard drive is working correctly in order to finish the data transfer operation. If you are encountering external hard drive errors on your Windows 7, it is an indication that your computer cannot access the hard drive properly.
