storage drive

Hardware that stores data without power until purposely erased. For decades, the hard drive has been the computer's internal storage unit; however, solid state drives (SSDs) are increasingly replacing hard drives, and "storage drive" is the more accurate term for storage hardware. See storage device and storage vs. memory.
