So, when you bought your computer a few years ago, you thought it had a hard drive with a lot of storage capacity that you had ever needed. However, as your computer aged, it will become less efficient and start to perform terribly slow. In order to avoid that, you don’t even have the files that you can remove and free up the storage space. In such case, external hard drives play an important role.
