Portable Hard Drives – The perfect solution for storage on the go!
Portable hard drives are becoming more and more common. Why? Some people want a portable hard drive in order to create additional file storage space for a computer that lacks extensive internal storage, especially for laptops and netbooks. Others use a portable external hard drive for backing up files and archiving so they are ultra-secure in case of computer failure.
But why choose a portable drive over a desktop drive? There are numerous reasons, including:
- A portable drive does not require an external power source
- A portable drive is great for on-the-go; it is small enough to carry with you and often designed to be rugged for transporting
- A portable drive can be easily used among multiple PC’s for file sharing
- A portable drive allows you to schedule automatic backups of files
- A portable drive stores easily if archiving
- No External Power Source
Portable external hard drives, in industry terms, are called “plug-and-play.” Plug and play means you can simply connect the drive to your USB port, and you are ready to start dragging and dropping files. You don't need an additional power source like you do on a desktop unit.
Great for On-the-Go
Ideally, compact portable hard drives can travel with you. Many come in fashionably thin styles and often have a rugged casing that can withstand accidental drops. Slip a USB portable hard drive into your laptop case or even your pocket—they are THAT small.
If you work with large files, a portable hard drive is a great place to save them. Move from home to office or even desk to desk at work and easily manipulate and save files on your portable hard drive. Just be sure to use the same type of computer. It is NOT recommended to switch between Macs and PCs once you have formatted your portable hard drive.
Portable hard drives hold large amounts of information and allow you to schedule regular backups automatically – that’s one less thing you have to remember. Often, USB portable hard drives feature backup software you set up once and forget about!
Archiving digital files simply means creating a safe storage place for important files. Archived data is often a permanent record that is moved, not copied, from one system to another and retained for a specified period of time. Save very important files on a portable drive and then put it in a safe or a lock box.
