A:AnswerHDD (Hard Disk Drive) is the traditional format of "hard drive". It is composed of a set of spinning, magnetic discs. Think CD ROM.
SSD (Solid State Drive) is a modern development of flash memory, based on circuit boards. Think computer chip.
SSD is faster, because information does not need to be found on a spinning disc, it is more durable because it is just a circuit board, and it is quieter because there are no moving parts. SSD are therefore the superior choice in terms of usage, but they are more expensive in terms of price to storage space ratio. Therefore systems will typically have an SSD for the operating system and other important or often-used software, and an HDD for bulk media storage like music, movies, project files, games.
