Using the Hard Disk Drive
Your computer comes with a hard disk drive as drive C.
A hard disk drive is a storage device with non-removable, rotating,
magnetic storage platters inside it. It is where your operating system and
application software programs are stored.
Your hard disk drive is a 2.5-inch IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics)
hard disk drive. This type of drive embodies the latest in fast, reliable
mass storage by integrating all the control circuitry necessary for
operation directly onto the drive itself. This allows the drive
manufacturer to carefully optimize drive performance.
Make regular backups of your data files from your hard disk drive to floppy disks or
other storage media.
Never try to remove or install the hard disk drive while the computer is powered
on. Doing so can result in loss of data, and can damage the computer and the
hard disk drive's sensitive circuitry.
Never turn off or reset the computer while the hard disk drive in-use indicator is on.
