Portable storage devices- Computer Literacy for Windows 10

Another common device you'll most likely use at some point or another is an external hard drive or storage device. An external drive can be a simple flash or thumb drive like this one. These typically plug into your computer's USB port, and you can currently get them in capacities from around two gigabytes up to 512 gigabytes. For significantly more storage space, you'll have to go with an external hard drive like this one. These also can connect your PC via USB. They often require that you plug them into their own power outlet as well, although you will find some models that are powered through the USB port. So using an external hard drive or thumb drive is simply a matter of plugging it into your PC.

In fact, I have a thumb drive here, that I'm just going to plug into my computer's USB port. After a moment, you should see an alert appear that says to click to determine what to do with removable drives. So I'll click that. Basically, Windows is asking what you want to do with this storage device it's detected.
