Don't know which external drive you should choose? Let us help you.

Continue

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.
