Hi there,

I just started studying IT and I am still very new at this so excuse me for the "not so interesting" question.

If HDD contain disks that has a great amount of space on it. Then why are these discs not sold separately? Like DVD's are sold?

Thanks in advance.

The hard drive discs are sealed inside the case to be contamination free. Removing the discs and handling them is a quick ticket to failure. Even the act of removing the cover will make the drive fail. The screws on the cover is torqued to a certain inch pounds for proper operations.
