Why Should Your Student Use One?

How Tough is the External Hard Drive?

As kids become more mobile, frequently traveling from house to school, to after school programs, to friends’ houses before returning home; their college work (performed on the household PC) can become corrupted or lost. And while the dog didn’t eat his homework, it is just as distressing for the child and parent to realize that someone accidentally deleted a pupil’s 20 page book report!

With a external drive, all work can be equally saved to and opened from the enclosed disc. No muss, no lost papers! If a pupil has taken a home made video they desire to reveal for their science course then it’s an easy matter of unplugging the driveway, carrying it to school and returning it safely home.

Kids are tough on matters. They accidentally drop book bags and backpacks on hard, concrete surfaces or muddy plop them on the wet ground. Just how will an external drive consume? While being in a metal case averts, direct contact with the hard disk, it is still very vulnerable to drops and falls while switched on. Teach your student how to care for their hard drive while it’s working out.


But after turned away, the best external hard drive can withstand a certain amount of abuse. But like all electronics, your external drive does not work well when exposed to water or moisture. So that the best way I have found to provide a little additional padding for the instance plus give it fine watertight cover, it to purchase one of these soft-sided, insulated lunch bags you can buy in any department store.


These lunch boxes have been already waterproofed or water resistant, have nice roomy interiors large enough for most enclosures with space to spare to wires and power cords. They have soft padded sides which include another layer of protection for the drive. Like notebook cases do.
