To access the data in your hard drive, you will need to connect it to your computer. Otherwise, you won’t be able to get to the digital files. There are many different connection types. Which connection types are currently available? In this video, Kevin Ames goes over what the currently used hard drive to connection types are.
- Connectivity.…No, not our internet connectivity.…But how we put the hard drive in connection to the computer.…And there are many, many different ways of doing that.…We're going to start with the most common,…and go back to some that have been deprecated over time,…or are much less common.…Let's start with USB, the Universal Serial Bus.…It comes in two modern variations.…USB 3.0 has a transfer speed of up to 5Gbps.…
Remember, you have to divide by eight in order…to get the megabytes per second.…And USB-C (3.1) has a transfer speed of up to 10Gbps.…Thunderbolt.…Thunderbolt was established by Intel and adapted…very early by Apple, and they have really good…data transfer speeds.…Thunderbolt 1, the original, was 10Gbps…and measured up very nicely to USB-C.…
Thunderbolt 2 has 20Gbps, while Thunderbolt 3…uses a USB-C connector and it has a transfer speed…of up to 20Gbps with a standard cable.…And it supports up to 40Gbps with an active cable.…So USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 are really the fastest…connections available currently on computers.…
