Hi perplexed. The same as the difference between a monitor and a screen.
They are one and the same. Technically they should be called "Hard disk drives".
The "Hard" part of the name differentiated them from floppy disk drives and Optical disk drives.

Commonly the actual computer box (case, motherboard, CPU, RAM, PSU & drives) is also referred to as the "hard drive", however this is a lazy description.
