The type of Hard Drive or the internal storage drive installed on a computer can either be HDD (Hard Disk Drive) or SSD (Solid State Drive) type. While, traditional HDD (Hard Disk Drive) type storage is cheaper to buy, it is much slower compared to SSD (Solid State Drive) type storage. SSD drives provide significantly faster data transfer and retrieval rates compared to HDDs.
