What is a portable hard drive?

Put very simply, a portable hard drive is a small piece of external kit which can be connected easily to your computer (desktop PC or laptop) via USB. You can store files and documents on it, and because the device is portable you can easily transport files between different computers.

A portable hard drive is a really useful device which can be permanently connected to your PC and used as additional storage, for backing up files and as your own personal cloud. Or it can be temporarily connected and used as a method of transporting and transferring important media and files from one device with a compatible connection to another. You can do this with a USB stick, of course, but a portable hard drive has so much more capacity.

Why use a portable hard drive?

There are many reasons to invest in a portable hard drive - and not just the fact that they are relatively inexpensive and therefore cost-efficient. The main reasons for using portable hard drives are that they offer immediate and easy expansion of your PC's storage capability, and also that they can be taken anywhere without much fuss.

Where do I keep my portable hard drive?

If you are using your new portable hard drive for expanding the storage capability of a desktop PC then it's an easy enough question to answer. You'd attach it and position it nearby - on your desk or at your workstation or wherever is convenient and semi-permanent in that area. If you are using it portably, then these drives are extremely lightweight and can be easily stored in a laptop bag or rucksack - meaning it's super-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 at Ebuyer. In fact buying an external hard drive can be a much cheaper option than paying for the same amount of cloud storage.

Security is also 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 with a portable hard drive

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 connections available, files will be transferred at lightning speed.

Portable hard drives at Ebuyer

Of course if you are entrusting your digital files to an external hard drive you need to know that 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.
