Internal Hard Drive
A 73GB 10K RPM internal hard drive is a storage solution that can be installed inside a computer or server. It has a storage capacity of 73GB and a rotation speed of 10,000 RPM.
- High-performance: The 10K RPM speed of the hard drive means that it can access data quickly, making it well-suited for applications that require high IOPS (input/output operations per second) or quick data access.
- High reliability: 10K RPM hard drives have a faster spin rate which means they generate less heat, and have fewer moving parts, which results in less mechanical failure and longer lifespan.
- Compatibility: Internal hard drives are compatible with most desktop and laptop computers, and can be easily installed with the right tools and cables.
- Limited Capacity: 73GB is a limited amount of storage capacity compared to other newer hard drives in the market.
- Higher Cost: 10K RPM hard drives are typically more expensive than 7.2K RPM hard drives
Increase Your System's Performance
There are several ways to increase the performance of a 73GB 10K RPM internal hard drive:
- Defragment the drive: Fragmentation occurs when files are broken into small pieces and scattered across the hard drive. Defragmenting the drive rearranges the files and consolidates the fragments, which can improve performance.
- Disable unnecessary programs: Running too many programs at once can slow down the hard drive. Close or disable programs that are not in use to free up resources.
- Disable indexing: Indexing is a process that speeds up file searches, but it can also consume resources and slow down the hard drive.
- Delete unnecessary files: The more files on the hard drive, the more time it takes for the drive to access them. Delete files that are no longer needed to free up space.
- Add more RAM: Adding more RAM can also help to improve performance as it will reduce the amount of time the hard drive needs to access the virtual memory.
- Use an SSD: Solid-state drives (SSDs) are faster than traditional hard drives and can greatly improve system performance.
It is important to note that these are general tips and may not all apply to your specific system. It's always a good idea to consult your system's manual or consult with a professional to determine the best approach for your system.
Efficient file management and retrieval
Here are some tips for efficient file management and retrieval on a 73GB 10K RPM internal hard drive:
- Organize files into folders: Grouping related files together in folders can make it easier to find and retrieve them later.
- Use descriptive file names: Use meaningful and descriptive names for your files, rather than generic names like "document1.docx."
- Use a search function: Most operating systems have a built-in search function that can be used to quickly find files.
- Use file compression: Compressing files can reduce the amount of space they take up on the hard drive, which can make it easier to find and retrieve them later.
- Use a backup system: Regularly backing up your files can protect them from loss or damage and make it easier to retrieve them if needed.
- Use indexing: Indexing is a process that speeds up file searches, and it can be useful to enable this feature on your hard drive.
- Use file management software: There are many file management software available in the market which can help you in managing and retrieving files easily.
- Keep the Hard Drive clean and defragmented: Regularly cleaning and defragmenting your hard drive can improve performance and make it easier to find and retrieve files.

About Refurbished Products
The ultra320 SCSI hard drive generation is the immediate upgrade of its predecessor, the ultra160 SCSI. The newer generation ultra320 SCSI HDD comes about as an implementation of the SCSI-3 Parallel Interface-4 (SPI-4) standards.
Over its lifetime, the SCSI standard is widely used in servers and high-end workstations. It is possible to install SCSI HDDs in a desktop PC that has one or more IDE disk drives. The IDE drive acts as the boot drive, while the SCSI hard drive provides additional storage capacity. SCSI is not commonly used in desktop PCs, although it allows the addition of a scanner and several other drives such as DVD-RAM, CD-Rs, and Zip drives to a single SCSI cable chain. USB and FireWire have gradually replaced the SCSI as alternate interfaces in the latest desktop PCs.
In-network servers, SCSI allows for the setting up of several hard drives in the RAID configuration to reduce the risk of loss of data. The configuration supports hot-swapping - the changing of hard drives while the system is still operating.
Ultra320 SCSI HDD just as the name suggests delivers 320 Mbps top speed and provides a faster bus at 80 MHz and a wider data path at 16 bit. Connections with the Ultra320 SCSI HDDs just like with SCSI devices can be daisy-chained since they have two ports - the incoming and the outgoing cables. Besides, SCSI has a strong commitment to backward compatibility to previous generations, which explains its widespread use as an I/O interface and elimination of the need for substantial investments in equipment and infrastructure. Migration to the ultra320 SCSI HDD is smooth whether it is from the Ultra160 SCSI or other generations of the SCSI standard because of backward compatibility.
The ultra320 SCSI hard drive takes on technologies such as domain validation, cyclic redundancy check, and dual-edge clocking first introduced by ultra160 SCSI. Additionally, the ultra320 SCSI hard drive introduces protocol changes and other technologies that enhance performance and support reliable data transfer speeds at 320 Mbps. We have the following ultra320 SCSI HDD options: 146GB-10K RPM, 146GB-15K RPM, 300GB-10K RPM, 300GB-15K RPM, 36GB-10K RPM, 36GB-15K RPM, 73GB-10K RPM, 73GB-15K RPM, and 18GB-15K RPM to meet your performance and storage requirements.
The standard features of the ultra320 SCSI hard drive include:
- Two-fold increase in transfer speed: The ultra320 SCSI hard drive increases the transfer rate by 100% from the previous generation at the rate of 320 Mbps. The technology allows greater transfer rates, effectively leading to greater performance in environments of extended data transfer and support for many devices on a single bus.
- Support for SCSI packet protocol: By enabling packet protocols, the ultra320 SCSI HDD helps to reduce command overhead by using dual transition (DT) data phases to transfer data, commands, and statuses rather than asynchronous phases that are generally slow. Packet protocol allows for the transfer of multiple commands in one connection as well as increased performance through minimal command overhead and maximum bus utilization.
- Quick Arbitration and Selection (QAS): the technology helps reduce control release overhead between devices at the SCSI bus. QAS is all about reducing command overhead and maximizing utilization of the bus.
- Read/Write Data Streaming facilitates the reduction of overhead associated with data transfer through the sending of a LUN Q-TAG (LQ) data stream packet, which is subsequently followed by multiple data packets. Greater write data streaming is achieved since the bus turnaround delay is eliminated between LQ and data packets.
- The flow control feature facilitates the initiator to enhance the pre-fetching of data for writes and enhance the flushing of FIFOs for reads.
