|Details:||Western Digital 16TB External/Desktop USB Drive for $260|
World Backup Day is this week, where you are encouraged to make a copy of your important files, especially your irreplaceable photos, videos, and documents.
Western Digital Elements 16TB External/Desktop USB Hard Drive for $350, and code 93XQR56 applies $90 off. Normally about $327.
The USB interface plugs into a Mac or PC, and the 16TB provides a massive amount of backup disk capacity. The product has a 2-year warranty.
In our opinion, hard drives provide excellent balance between reliable storage at an affordable cost. Owning a large-capacity hard drive is cheaper than the recurring cost of cloud storage, and your files remain private by keeping the hard drive in a safe place. Many years down the road, when your hard drive fails, a recovery service can restore its data easier than if it were stored on an SSD.
If you have a lot of videos that you would like to keep forever, backing them up to a hard drive is a good option.
For comparison, Amazon Prime members get unlimited photo storage including with Prime membership, however free video storage is limited to just 10GB. Adding 1 TB of video storage costs $60/yr, and goes up from there.
If you want to extract the hard drive to put inside a desktop computer, that will void the 2-year warranty but saves $60 when buying internal 3.5" 16TB hard drive.
