External hard drives provide a secure way of backing up files on computers and gaming consoles. With options that have up to 6TB of space, users can store documents and files and take them from one device to another, without relying on cloud storage options. Just connect the hard drive using a USB connection and your entire library is available when you need it.

Connectivity Options for 6TB External Hard Drives

External hard drives are available with USB 2.0 and 3.0, eSATA and Thunderbolt connections. USB 3.0 and eSATA provide faster copying, but the computer needs to support the technology for the increased speeds. Consider a USB 2.0 connection for older devices that don't have 3.0 technology, ensuring a budget friendly option that delivers decent file transfer speed. A hard drive with an eSATA connection plugs into the computer's internal components, making it an ideal solution for those with a limited number of USB ports available on the device. Thunderbolt technology, which is designed for use with Apple products, provides increased transfer speeds beyond those of a USB 3.0.

External Hard Drive Usage Considerations

A 6TB external hard drive provides enough space for up to 1,500 hours of high-definition videos or individual movies, or approximately 1,5000,000 digital song files. With 6TB of space, these hard drives hold numerous game files, saving hours of play on even the most memory-intensive titles. An external drive delivers faster load times, helping users get back into the game without a long wait. There are several drives available that include password protection and data encryption, making them an ideal option for those who save important files and sensitive information and transport it to other computers.

Durable Enough to Travel

External hard drives are available in different designs that improve overall durability. Lightweight models work well for those who plan on transporting files to various locations. Consider pocket-size options for improved portability that fits easily in a bag or briefcase. Users who need storage space without portability will appreciate the larger, desktop options. There are 6TB external hard drives with aluminum casings that provide protection against shock, ensuring files and data are safe with daily transportation. Some designs also include multiple drives inside a hard plastic case, making it simple to use the entire unit, or remove the required drive for added portability.

Consider the Power Source

External hard drives are available in both adapter-powered and device-powered options. Look for models with an AC adapter for improved speeds, or consider those that use the device's power for areas where plugins are already filled. Drives with AC adapters are ideal for using in stationary settings or when portability isn't a consideration. Use a 6TB external hard drive with a USB 3.0 connection for fast file transfers and saves with a focus on portability, ensuring quick load times when used with a device with a compatible port. External drives that include fans that protect against overheating are a good choice for heavy users and those who tend to transfer large files.
