Advantages of purchasing external hard drives

  • Data backup: External hard drives are a popular backup solution, enabling users to make copies of important files and store them in a separate location. This can help protect against data loss in the event of a computer crash, theft, or any other disaster.
  • Portable storage: Small portable drives are convenient for users who need to carry their files with them on the go. They can be used to store documents, music, photos, and other files, and can be easily transferred between computers.
  • Media storage: External hard drives with large capacities are ideal for storing large media files, such as videos and high-resolution photos. This can help free up space on a computer’s internal hard drive and improve performance.
  • File sharing: External hard drives can be used to share files between multiple computers or users. This is particularly useful for businesses or organizations that need to share large files or collaborate on projects.

Some external hard drives may also come with additional features, such as encryption or backup software, that can help protect data and simplify the backup process. Encryption can help ensure that data is kept secure in the event that the drive is lost or stolen, while backup software can automate the backup process and make it easier for users to restore their files in the event of a disaster.

Models with 7200 rpm platters are faster, but draw more power from host computers. If you’re looking for a portable drive to back up essential files, you can pick an External Hard Drive 1TB of storage capacity. Portable and desktop units with up to 4TB capacity are suitable for system backups. For media servers and gaming computers, consider models with 6TB or more of storage capacity.

A USB 3.1 port is twice as fast as a USB 3.0. Desktop external HDDs may also have eSATA, FireWire, and Thunderbolt ports. The fastest of these is Thunderbolt.
