Times have changed and you can now get a Seagate 5 TB Portable Hard Drive for under $100!
I think we probably paid that much for a 500 MB portable drive years ago!
With such a large drive, you can store years of family photos and videos in it.
And these drives now come with backup software which automatically backs up your files.
I have my portable drive plugged into the PC at all times and set it to update once a day (I think you can set it to update continuously too).
I’ll transfer photos/videos from my phone to the PC and the portable drive backs it up, along with the other files in the PC.
If you ever have to evacuate your house in a hurry, you can easily grab the portable drive and at least have most, if not all, of your important files with you.
The Seagate 5 TB Portable Hard Drive comes with:
- Seagate Backup Plus 5 GB Portable drive
- 18″ USB 3.0 cable
- quick start guide
- downloadable toolkit backup software
- 2-year Seagate rescue plan
The Seagate 5 TB Portable Hard Drive is normally priced at $119.99.
There’s currently a $30 instant rebate which reduces the price to $89.99.
