This is a hard drive - the little device that keeps all the files that make a PC run - your c: drive. If that little lever on the left hits the platter below it while it's spinning, your hard drive will crash - not a good thing. The HD is silver, like chrome, but I used red foil wrapping paper to reflect the red color onto the drive.
