What is a Desktop Hard Drive?

As the name implies, these are large-capacity storage drives which sit on top of your desk and are used in conjunction with your computer. While desktop drives are certainly larger than thin-and-light portable drives, which can be slid in a bag for when working on the go, they are still relatively compact and don't take up a huge amount of desk space. If you see yourself requiring more than one of these desktop hard drives, however, it's worth considering a network-attached storage (NAS) enclosure.

Why Should I Buy a Desktop Hard Drive?

In today's digital age, it's easy to accumulate a vast, and sometimes overwhelming, amount of data: thousands of smartphone photos, ultra-high-res videos, back-ups upon back-ups, and more.

The devices we enjoy this content on have a limited amount of internal storage, however. So, unless you want to constantly delete old data to make way for new data, you need to offload it to an external storage device, whether it be a desktop drive, a portable drive, or cloud storage.

For many, an inexpensive portable drive is the most convenient solution, but they aren't available in the largest capacities, maxing out at around the 4-5TB mark. And while there's services which offer terabytes' worth of storage in the cloud, you'll pay a premium for them.

With a desktop hard drive, you'll be able to attach it to a desktop or laptop and store most, if not all, of your digital life. These drives come in much higher capacities, up to 22TB. Whilst it's unlikely the average user will need 20TB of storage, even a more 'modest' 10TB drive will likely be more than enough to store full collections of photos, music, and videos.

Security & Peace of Mind

Another excellent reason to invest in a desktop hard drive is for the added security and people of mind they provide. Back up all your files to a desktop hard drive and, in the event of your PC's internal drive failing, you won't lose anything. Everything will be safe and sound on the desktop hard drive, ready for recovery.

Some models of desktop hard drive have added layers of security, such as encryption and password protection. It's worth looking at the specification of a drive on our website to ensure that the model you're interested in has these kinds of features. They're highly beneficial if the drive is for use within a business, so that sensitive information contained on it can only be accessed by those who have the correct clearance.
