Portable hard drives from Ebuyer.com

What is a portable hard drive?

A portable hard drive is a device that is connected to a computer by USB and is used to store data, files and information. With storage capacities of up to 4TB, a portable hard drive can hold many more files than other storage devices and a computer internal drive. And, as it is small enough to fit in a pocket the device and its files can be taken anywhere and used with any computer.

An external hard drive is a useful piece of kit that can be used as additional storage, for backing up files and as your own personal cloud. And, by using portable hard drives, important media and files can be easily transported and shared with any device with a compatible connection.

Reliability Built In

Of course if you are entrusting your digital files to an external hard drive you need to know they will be safe. So choosing the right device is essential. And, here at Ebuyer, we have a wide range of hard drives from the biggest names in tech. For example Western Digital produce a number of reliable and high capacity drives as do Buffalo and Toshiba amongst others.

Why Use A Portable Hard Drive?

There are a few reasons but, unsurprisingly, the main reason for using a portable hard drive is that it can be taken anywhere. These drives are extremely lightweight and can be easily stored in a laptop bag or rucksack making it easy to take large amounts of data with you wherever you go

Which brings us onto the next big plus point. Portable hard drives can store huge amounts of data and have storage capacities of up to 4 terabytes. But for most users 500gb will be more than enough.

Drives of this size can easily store tens of thousands of photos and tunes and they can be purchased for very low prices here on Ebuyer.com. In fact buying an external hard drive can be a much cheaper option than paying for the same amount of cloud storage.

Security is always a concern with any important digital files and many portable hard drives can encrypt stored data and the drives themselves can be password protected. Continuing the theme, sensitive data or favourite media can be backed up or copied on to portable hard drive. The device can then be safely stored in a safe or secure cupboard ready to be retrieved if the original files are lost.

Fast Transfer

Transferring data between a computer and a portable hard drive is a quick and easy process.

Simply connect the drive and it will be instantly recognised by the computer. Files can then be dragged and dropped onto the portable hard drive. And, with USB 3.0 as well as Firewire connections available, files will be transferred at lightning speed.
