Expansion external hard drive

What is an expansion external hard deive and how does it differ from other types of external hard drive

Posted by on

  • Dennis Bails Nov 04, 2012

    Some external hard drives are adversised as 'expansion.' Does this mean that the drive is expandable (which does not make sense or merely that the drive expands the amount of hard drive which is already inherent in the Comcputer? If it merely adversising hype? Or is it connected to the ather confusing indication that an externa harddrive is between 1 tb and say 1.9tb as is advertised in some cases? Thanks for any help.e)ble

It's the same thing, it 'expands' your storage and basically gives you more space to store thing. It's an advertising thing. You cannot expand whats inside your computer, that would require you to replace the hard disk itself. It's just a word they put in to make their product more attractive I believe.

    Thankyou Anthony. You have confirmed what I suspected. Dummies like me love the advertising hype of new hardware?

Are you using Windows? If you are using Windows, go to Start => Programs => Accessories => System Tools => Backup. In the backup wizard that opens, choose which backup type you want and you can choose your backup destination.

Hi There,

The message that you are getting from your computer system is because the motherboard has got very hot and therefore requires new motherboard and the new fan will come with it. I would buy a new computer instead of repairing this one due to the cost involved.

The answer to your data is yes... your hard drive can taken out and the data copied to another system, or even burned to cd. I would buy an external drive kit from pc shop and instert your drive into it and use it as an external deive on your new laptop.

Please let me know if you need more help.

Regards,

Philip
