The main types are hard disk drives (HDD), solid state drives (SSD), and universal serial bus (USB) connected thumb drives. External disk drives may also be connected using USB.
For information on mounting other types of devices that may also store data see Chapter 53.
For a guide to wipe your disk see Section 79.19.
