Get Educated on Hard Disk Drives in this Video

Today we may be all about solid state flash memory for our storage needs, but there's a high chance that the majority of our data still resides on magnetic-based disk drives.

In fact, we've relied on hard disk drives and its magnetic genius to store our data for decades. Without storage, our computing experiences would be meaningless, like going through life unable to remember what you experienced just a second ago.

Bill Hammock, the "EngineerGuy", has created a new video in his YouTube series, and this one explains just how hard disk drives work. They're quite amazing pieces of engineering, even in today's world where SSDs are the new bleeding edge storage medium.
