Hard drives are archaic, and the term is technically incorrect when you're speaking of SSDs. It'd be better to change it to "to your computer", or "locally".

Good call on the verbiage, I agree that harddrive is not ideal here. For the average user, they don't distinguish between the type of storage medium, but it makes more sense to use a different term.

Although computer is nice, it's a bit limiting in our current technological landscape, let's use device instead, would either of you like to update the patch to reflect this?
