Hard drives have improved over time, in the same way as USB flash drives. The storage capacity of these can be considerably large, far more than that of any mobile device.

Therefore, it is common to have a lot of information on a hard drive, perhaps because it is too much for a phone or to back up files. Be that as it may, it is very easy to transfer all that data or just what you need to your mobile phone and a little further down we will show you how to connect a hard drive or USB stick to your phone Android.

The first thing you need to know is if your device is compatible with USB OTG, this is essential, since, if not, you will not be able to connect a hard drive or a pendrive.

You have to keep in mind that a hard drive needs power to function and your device's USB output won't be able to give it what it needs. To solve this problem you will need to have a dual USB cable. One of these cables will need to go to your device and the other to a battery to power the hard drive.

Another thing to keep in mind is that the Microsoft NTFS Paragon USB application only allows reading of files, not writing. This means you can copy files from hard drive to your device, but you can't add anything to the hard drive in question.
