It’s hard to get excited about a portable hard drive, especially in a world where almost anything can be backed up to the cloud. There are plenty of hotels with dodgy internet connections, which makes them necessary if you need to have large files at the ready. Verbatim has made several generations of their Store ‘n’ Go USB Hard Drive series, which makes it convenient to have everything you need at the ready. The Store ‘n’ Go USB hard drive from Verbatim comes in sizes ranging from 1TB to 4TB depending on how much data you need to bring with you.
The drive is slightly larger than the average smartphone, making it easy to pack in almost any bag, from a clutch purse all the way to your favorite carry-on suitcase. It even tucks into the pocket of a suit jacket or pair of jeans, if you want to keep your files with you. A separate USB cable makes it easy to connect to any computer.
While most software is available in a browser these days, I’m always more concerned with data loss while traveling because there are photos, audio, and video recordings that are irrecoverable if your iPad or laptop suddenly crash.
