OnSpec USB Fixed / Removable Disk Drive which is at most times known as just a hard disk is a non explosive device used for storage of data that is digitally programmed on fast turning platters that have magnetic surface. This hard disk drive from OnSpec can either be fixed or removable; the more traditional disk drive possessed this removable feature with the more modern hard disk drivers being a fixed unit with the exception of an escape opening for balancing air pressure. This hard disk drive operates by magnetically attracting ferromagnetic things in such a direction to display a 1 or 0 binary digit. Data is identified by making the material magnetic. Its features include an actuator with actuator arm and actuator axis, a platter, spindle, head, power connector, IDE Connector and a Jumper Block.

Near the center of the actuator is the read and write head which is connected by a cable. The head support which is not heavy but is very firm can attain an acceleration of 250 Gs. There is a top plate and a mobile coil motor that alters the position of the head to the required position.
