Portable storage drives enable you to easily store and carry data wherever you go. Nowadays, most storage devices come with encrypted data protection so that you can keep your files secure. When it comes to memory management tasks like data fetching and feeding, Solid State Drives (SSDs) perform way better than a hard drive. Not only are they compact, but also they are much faster.
Conventional Hard Drives are mechanical storage devices made of moving parts. As a result, they are susceptible to shocks, wear/tear and drops. On the other hand, Solid-State Drives are made of several memory chips installed on a circuit board. This provides durability and protection against shocks and falls. Being small in size, you can easily carry them in your pocket.
