But I think people put internal HDD because it's easier to make partitions into Movies, Music and Games into different drives and then just store it in the computer.
You could use an external for the same purpose though.
No, it is not dumb. In fact, it is a typical configuration. Consumers and gamers usually have one solid state drive for the operating system, software applications, utilities, and a few favorite games. All other data is stored on a hard disk drive. Typically the other data is stored on an internal hard disk drive, but an external hard drive will work too.
would it be safer to do external or am i running the same or bigger risk doing that?
