If you are running out of free space on your internal hard drive in your notebook or computer, getting an external hard drive is the smart thing to do. Whether you want to back up your personal data or save your favourite movies, photos, and videos, store them on an external HDD and take them wherever you go. 

What are the capacities of external drives?

A typical external hard drive is extremely lightweight and is fitted into a compact case. Therefore, it is very easy to carry. External hard drives come in a vast range of capacities. The standard 1 TB, 2 TB or 3 TB drives are affordable and can easily store thousands of films and photos, while the 6 TB or 8 TB versions will be perfect even for saving data of a whole business.

Brands of external drives

When it comes to brands, Verbatim and Western Digital are always the right choice. They are usually equipped with USB 3.0 for fast data transfers. Moreover, they often feature encryption and password protection for maximum security.

External drives

External drives

Does the storage capacity of your internal hard drive no longer satisfy your needs? If you want to back up your data, save your favorite movies and photos, external hard drives make them all accessible from both your desktop and notebook computers.

Storage Capacity

External HDDs are typically very light and compact, making them easily portable. All you have to do is select the right storage capacity. 1TB to 3TB external hard drives are affordable and can hold thousands of photos, while 6TB or 8TB are capable of backing up all the chapters of your life as well as all your movies and music.

External HDD Manufacturers

External hard drives from brands such as Verbatim or Western Digital will always be a good and reliable choice. They are generally equipped with USB 3.0 for rapid data transfer, encryption technology and password protection, all of which are convenient and extremely secure components.
