    A high capacity computer storage device that is based on a rotating rigid disk with a magnetic coating onto which data may be recorded. The hard disc drive should technically refer only to the mechanism that controls the positioning, reading, and writing of the hard disc, but today hard disc, disc drive etc. are terms that are commonly used for the combination of the two parts.
