A solid-state drive is a type of electronic data storage that keeps the information on flash memory, with the same purpose as the hard drive disk. It is usually known by the shortened version, SSD.
The main differences between SSD and the older type of computer storage, the HDD, is the speed of reading and writing the data ( most important), and the size.
Because of these notable differences, newer computers and laptops replace the HDD with SSD storage. However, you can still find systems with a hard disk or even with both of them.
