As you might already be aware, the hard drives that come with laptops are more susceptible to damage than those which are installed in desktop PCs because of portability issues. For instance, an individual who prefers browsing the Internet from a coffee shop risks spilling fluids on the front panel of his laptop – this has the potential to cause mechanical failures in its storage device. Most laptop manufacturers currently ship them with a separate Solid State Drive (SSD) and Hard Drive Disk (HDD). The SSD acts as the boot device that stores system files. If the design of a laptop is flexible enough, a conventional hard drive might be included to offer a larger storage capacity for bulk files.
