USB 3.0 hard disk drives:

Universal Serial Bus or famously named as USB is a means for interfacing computers with other electronic gadgets such as external storage volumes and pen drives. USB 3.0 is the latest addition to the USB devices and ports. This is the third major edition of the USB standard connectivity which includes plentiful enhancements over the conventional ones. The improvements include Super Speed (SS) data transfer method which enables you to transfer data up to a rate of 625 MB per sec, which is about 10 X faster than the previous (USB 2.0) standard. It is also advanced in better power managing and data reliability. But the goal of USB 3.0 for interfacing all USB enabled devices with each other remains same as all the earlier version devices.

Any external hard disk drive that is designed to support USB 3.0 port and is capable of achieving all its specifications can be called an USB 3.0 hard disk drive. However, these devices work on the earlier versions of USB ports as well.

Data loss can occur on an external media storage device due to various reasons.

Below detailed are few of the most common examples of both the situations:

  • Accidental file erasure: This is one of the prime factors of data deletion on all external hard disk drives. As external media storage devices do not have extra data recovery facilities to contain temporarily deleted items therefore, the deleted files will get removed entirely
  • Technical reasons: Technical reasons mainly inlcude corruption or damage of the USB 3.0 hard drive. These problems may encounter with any USB 3.0 drives primarily due to incorrect usage, such as removing the volume without closing it safely, file system corruption etc.
  • Power surge issues: Experiencing power outages or failures frequently while accessing data from a USB 3.0 hard drive results in data loss on it
  • Formatting the external media storage device: Formatting any volume causes all the data stored on it to get removed entirely. One may want to format the USB 3.0 hard due to various reasons such as changing file system, creating partitions, etc.
