Fixed Storage


The internal media used by a computer to store files, data, programs etc, and usually referred to as the Fixed Disk(s) or Hard Drive(s). Fixed storage devices obviously can be removed from the system for repair, maintenance, upgrade etc., but generally this cannot be done without a toolkit to open up the system for physical access by an engineer. The term is used mainly to differentiate these items from removable storage media such as tapes, floppy diskettes, CDs, etc.
