what is the mean of exposed on HDD?
i had no idea what did it means as i guess all the HDD is enclosed in the tower inside or hidden
Can you elaborate more. Of course, when you open/dismantle an hdd you expose the internal parts. Or, one can situate an hdd outside the case which I sometimes do when testing hdd's.
i find the phrase from PC tower description,
3.5 inch/HDD 5 hidden 2 exposed
so i had no idea what did it means?
Hidden drives usually refers to HDD and exposed drives are usually Optical drives (cd/dvd).
Since they are 3.5" HDDs, my guess is there are five internally mounted HDDS and two that can be installed from the outside, probably hot-swappable.
