What To Consider When Buying An External Hard Drive

Storage Capacity

Since external drives differ in their storage capacity, it is important to determine the appropriate capacity for your files. Storage capacity ranges from 250 GB to 4 TB. Individuals who have minimal files can find 500 GB to 1 TB as the appropriate capacity.

Connectivity

Most external drives usually support USB connectivity which is compatible with many PCs and laptops that have USB ports. Since copying speed usually depends on the type of USB supported, it is advisable to go for drives with fast USB 3.0 speed since they are also compatible backwards with devices that have USB 2.0. Drives that support USB connectivity are also easy to use and operate.

Design

Ensure that your hard drive has been constructed with material able to withstand daily wear and tear, including being able to withstand any force from knocks or when dropped down. Some of the durable designs are fitted with anti-shock rubber outer cases. Drives with rugged design are known to withstand shocks.

Portability

If you intend to carry the storage drive along with your other essentials, choosing a model that is lightweight is the best option.

Price

External drives come in a wide range of prices. It is important to choose an affordable hard drive that has your preferred parameters.

Security Features

Drives that come with additional security features such as hardware encryption or password protection options are very handy as they will help in protecting your files from unauthorized access or use. This will allow you to transport all your important files with ease.
