I am unable to copy large files to my hard disk drive, why is that? Verified
It's possible that the hard disk drive uses the FAT32 file system. This limits the size of files to around 4GB but can cause problems with files from 2GB and up. To be able to use larger files, the hard disk drive needs to be formatted to a different file system, for example NTFS. Caution! When formatting the hard disk drive, all files on that drive will be lost!

What is the difference between a hard disk drive and an SSD? Verified
A hard disk drive has multiple disks that move. It allows for large amounts of data to be stored, but uses a lot of power and is vulnerable. An SSD has no moving parts, but uses chips like a USB stick. It has the advantage of being fast and light, but allows for less data storage.
