With the popularity of external/removable hard disk drive, people are used to store their data, personal or business, on the external hard drive. The external/removable hard drive certainly brings much convenience in our daily life.
However, a survey from a data recovery company shows that the external hard drive takes the largest portion in the storage media from which people often lose their data. That is, the way to restore data from external/removable hard drive is much needed indeed. Certainly, a handy external hard drive recovery tool, like Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition, will be highly recommended to help retrieve data from external/removable hard drive.
An External/Removable hard drive is any hard drive which attaches to a port on the outside of a computer case. External hard drives are extremely useful for backing up computers and for moving data between computers.
External Hard Drive Interfaces
External hard drives can be connected using several popular interfaces. One external hard drive may support two or more of these interfaces.
FireWire, almost known as IEEE 1394, is a popular interface for Macintosh external hard drives, and became somewhat popular on PC's before USB 2.0 was standardized.
USB (Universal Serial Bus) is a standard for connecting a wide range of devices, including external hard drives, PDA's, and Sony PlayStations.
USB 1.x was not fast enough to satisfy most users of external hard drives. USB 2.0 provides slightly better performance than FireWire in most applications.
eSATA is the newest standard for external hard drives.
eSATA is an extension of the Serial ATA standard which allows the use of external hard drives. An external hard drive using an eSATA connection will not suffer a performance penalty imposed by encapsulating the ATA data inside the USB or FireWire protocols, because the eSATA external hard drive uses the same communications protocol as the internal hard drives.
A few external hard drives offer Ethernet connections.
These drives include intelligent electronics to enable them to act like file servers.
These external hard drives are actually low-end network attached storage devices.
