Hard Disk Drive. Although usually associated with computers, Panasonic's top-ranging DVD recorders also feature hard disks. Their enormous capacity can store huge amounts of video and images which can be archived or edited before transferring to a 'soft' disk such as a blank DVD-RAM or DVD-R.
abbrev. "Hard Disk Drive"
hard disk drive. A high-capacity data storage and retrieval device that is located inside a computer platform. A hard disk drive stores data on nonremovable high-density magnetic media based on a predetermined format for retrieval by the system at a later date.
In a personal computre, a hard disk drive (HDD) is the mechanism that controls the positioning, reading, and writing of the hard disk, which furnishes the largest amount of data storage for the PC.
Hard Disk Drive is the device that stores all content contained within your computer, including the operating system, all applications, documents, music, photos, and videos. See also: FDD
Also known as Hard Disk Drive. Mechanical A hard disk uses rigid rotating platters (disks). Each platter has a planar magnetic surface on which digital data may be stored. Information is written to the disk by transmitting an electromagnetic flux through an antenna or read-write head that is very close to a magnetic material, which in turn changes its polarization due to the flux. The information can be read by a read-write head which senses electrical change as the magnetic fields pass by in close proximity as the platter rotates. A typical hard disk drive design consists of a central axis or spindle upon which the platters spin at a constant rotational velocity. Moving along and between the platters on a common armature are read-write heads, with one head for each platter face. The armature moves the heads radially across the platters as they spin, allowing each head access to the entirety of the platter.
hard disk drive. A type of magnetic disk storage, a platter on which data can be encoded and stored, and the primary computer storage device. Developed by IBM in 1956, today's hard disks provide fast retrieval because they rotate constantly at high speed, from 3,000 to 10,000 rpm, and can hold several gigabytes.
Hard Disk Drive is a long-term stable storage for a computer. Slower than RAM but non-volatile
Hard Disk Drive - HDDs for desktops and servers are usually 3.5 inches in diameter and contain from 20GB to 400GB (2004) of data. HDDs for laptops (notebooks) are usually 2.5 inches in diameter and contain from 4GB to 60GB (2004) of data. Unlike "floppies", HDDs are NOT flexible and are made from aluminium covered with a magnetic oxide coating. They are encased in a steel case and because of the fine tolerances involved, are extremely fragile.
hard disk drive. The mechanism designed to read and write data and programs on a hard disk.
Hard Disk Drive - Also known as hard drive, it is a mechanical deviced used to store information on your computer. Information is stored on spinning discs magnetically. Usually your main hard drive is known as your "C" drive in Windows Explorer or My Computer.
A computer component (also called a "hard drive" or "rigid disk drive") that contains a hard disk, along with the magnetic head and drive mechanism used to store and read data from it. Unlike a floppy disk, the disk in an HDD is not removable. See floppy disk and hard disk.

An acronym for Hard Disk Drive.
Hard Disk Drive] This accessory provides additional memory for printing jobs, which allows larger jobs to be stored and printed, or for other functions as mentioned.

Hard Disk Drive, what you store all your data on in the computer. Hysteresis, in this case, refers to the tendency of the magnetic flux in a transformer’s core to not respond precisely to the magnetizing force of the current in primary coil. For instance, the predilection of the core to stay slightly magnetized even when the current in the primary coil has ceased.
Abbreviation for Hard Disk Drive.
Hard Disk Drive. Is a magnetic media storage device for recording digital information (like that used by computers or digital DVR video recorders).
Hard disk drive, or hard drive - used to permanently store data, programmes and the operating system, even when the computer is switched off - hopefully... This is a very delicate part of your PC and should be handled with care and backed up regularly. Size is now measured in Gigabytes (GB, 'gigs'). Minimum size for a 'normal' PC at the moment should be 40GB. 80GB costs hardly anything extra and is OK for a general office computer. If you are saving lots of large pictures, films or installing the latest games then the bigger the better.
Hard Disk Drive - This is where your saved games, music, and other files including Dashboard are stored on your XBOX.
