High-capacity portable storage with super-speed data transfers at your disposal. Check out the portable external storage drives we tested.
The volume of personal data is constantly increasing, driving the need for higher capacity portable storage. Higher capacity drives are now available in 2.5-inch form and are convenient to tag around. The capacity of portable storage drives has evolved greatly and with the advent of the super-speed USB 3.0 interface, they are faster and roomier than ever. These hard drives are as fast as internal hard drives, which means you can now transfer your data to and from USB storage at blazing speeds. Some manufacturers have been pushing the envelope to secure and protect data in portable drives, as they are quite prone to vibrations and impact. In order to make them sturdier and less prone to physical damage, manufacturers are designing their drives with rugged shells and are even water-proofing and fire-proofing some of them. To an extent, some enable encryption and password protection using biometrics to incorporate an additional layer of security to sensitive data. This added reinforcement ensures that your data is not only safe, but can also be safely lugged around any terrain across the globe.
