Find the right backup drive for your storage needs


There are various important things which you need to store in a secure way. Thus, it is crucial to have backup plan for your PC using an appropriate backup device.


There are two options available- Desktop backup drives and Network attached storage
We will discuss here both:

Desktop backup drives

There are several desktop backup drives that use rotational hard drives for which you require an external power supply. Well, these drives are not as fast as solid state drives but they are much more spacious and reasonable. Always look for the hard drive that can store much more than you need. For further protection, you can go for multi-drive device that can support RAID 1. It maintains the exact duplicate backup of your data. Try to use removable drives for backup so that you can keep your data protected offsite. One option for you is Buffalo DriveStation DDR.

In case, you want to backup multiple computers then go for network attached storage or NAS. NAS can range from single units to multiple drive devices. Mostly these devices have USB ports on them but you can’t connect them directly to PC. There are many NAS boxes including QNAP TS-469 Pro that allow you access files saved on the device from anywhere using Internet. But, these are complex to use. You can use Western Digital’s MyCloud drive which has easy to use interface and you can access it from Mac, PCs as well as Android and iOS devices.
