DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that the first ever hard disk drive made by IBM on September 13, 1956, was external? Yes, the IBM 350 Disk File did run internally within a computer and they were in the size of refrigerators. The brilliant mind behind this great invention is engineer Reynold B. Johnson. According to IMB archives, the first hard drive was primarily built for general data processing of business transactions, as it was able to record the transactions real-time. Interestingly, when Apple first introduced the concept of PC or Personal Computer in the 80s, they already had built-in hard drives. Consequently, in 1994, Universal Serial Bus (more commonly known today as USB) found its place in the computer world. The unprecedented and collective efforts of Compaq, DEC, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, NEC, and Nortel paved the way for the development of the external hard drive technology that we know today. Thanks to them—we are now able to store thousands of multimedia files into a small and portable USB flash drives and smaller external hard drives. But what’s next for hard drives? According to an article posted on Secure data, developers and manufacturers are still in quest for making hard drives of larger capacities, and in their hands lies the future of data recovery, because as of today, hard drives are still not immune to data corruption and failure.
