Want to back up quickly and easily? Backup to external hard disk drives.
Backup to external hard disk drives easily, securely, and efficiently.
As a hard disk is the fastest and largest backup medium you can get, you may want to back up all your important files to an external hard drive. You can backup literally everything: your Outlook and Outlook Express files, your bookmarks, your favorite save games, and of course, your important work documents, photos, images, and maybe even videos.
As an external HDD is detached from your system and, combined with a strong encryption algorithm, like blowfish or 3DES, you can get maximum security. Just make sure you actually remember the encryption password. You can also store your external hard disk offsite (at a friend’s house, a paid locker, or a specialized fire-proof storage place) in case your information is very important (well, generally, anyone can do that and it can’t hurt for sure).
As external hard disk drives have the cheapest storage volume (about 200Gb for $150?) and you can reuse them for several years, you may as well get the cheapest backup medium at your disposal. When using a backup schedule, you can simply backup the backup program run when you are absent (or maybe even at night) to backup everything without supervision. If you need two or more backup disks, you may as well get another external HDD.
Also, now there are quite large mobile hard drives, which can admit all the necessary data: work documents, e-mail files, etc. You can also carry your data anywhere you want and feel safe because some external hard disks are now hard to break by dropping.
So, go with external HDD and back up as fast as you want, as much as you want, secure your important data, get the cheapest backups and even be able to carry your backups anywhere you want.
