MicroSD and other flash storage are loaded on chips whereas inside a hard disk drive there are physical metal platters/”disks” which hold the information. These have also been designed to work across different desktop storage brands with universal mounting capabilities. They are also generally more resilient of a storage medium than flash memory, particularly when it comes to deleted/formatted data recovery. Portable storage has its merits but they are unpredictable at end of life.0Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppLeave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse What is the capital of UK?
