Portable hard drives
Data storage is everything in the digital age. In recent years, enormous data storage capacities have become relatively commonplace. While not long ago a terabyte was a near-unimaginable amount of data, these days we offer an extensive range of affordable portable hard drives with twice the capacity!
Portable hard drives have greater capacities than ever before, and leading manufacturers like Seagate and WD have managed to shrink these huge storage capabilities into remarkably small and powerful packages.
The slimline WD My Passport Ultra Exclusive Portable Hard Drive is an incredibly compact, effortlessly portable device that offers 2 TB of storage – that’s the equivalent of four times a MacBook Pro’s standard hard drive capacity, all neatly packed into a drive that’s barely bigger than a wallet.
With such huge volumes of data, security becomes increasingly important. Luckily most of our portable hard drives come with invaluable safety measures, like automatic backup software that will ensure you always have a backup copy of your files. Many of these hard drives are also equipped with password protection, giving you peace of mind that your valuable files and data won’t fall into the wrong hands should you lose your portable hard drive.
Alongside a comprehensive choice of WD portable hard drives, our complete range covers all the latest Seagate portable hard drives, including the 2 TB Game Drive for Xbox, made exclusively for use with the Xbox One and Xbox 360.
You may have a multitude of cloud storage accounts, but portable hard drives remain a great option if you’re looking for somewhere to backup your data. In fact, portable drives have come a long way in recent years – they’re faster, better designed, extra durable and more capacious than ever.
Today’s portable hard drives offer a lot of storage for the money. Not so long ago, 1TB portable hard drives were considered pretty substantial (1TB far exceeds the capacity of a MacBook Pro, after all) but portable drives offering four times that amount of storage are now commonplace, and remarkably affordable. Check out our WD, Maxtor and Seagate collections and you’ll find a great selection of accessibly priced 4TB portable hard drives to choose from. Manufacturers like G-Technology even offer colossal 10TB drives at very reasonable prices.
Such huge storage capacities are even more impressive when you see how sleek and compact many of these portable external hard drives are. Drives like WD’s My Passport, which offers 4TB of storage, are smart, sturdy and extremely compact, giving you brilliantly convenient storage that fits in the palm of your hand.
The WD My Passport range is no less impressive when it comes to speed and security, providing optional 256-bit AES hardware encryption to keep your data safe, and ultra-rapid USB 3.0 transfer rates of up to 5 GB per second.
If you’re looking for a data storage solution that offers security, convenience and rapid transfer speeds you could do a lot worse than a portable hard drive from the Currys data storage collection.
