Re: portable external HD vs desktop HD for backup

I use a portable (shirt-pocketable) 2TB Western Digital USB3 drive for backup.  The drive uses only a short USB3 cable to connect to my desktop & laptop.  USB3 transfers files very quickly.

Normally I back up my SSD boot drive to an internal 1TB HDD and then I copy the backup files to the external drive from time to time.  The external drive also goes with me on trips where I make backups of my photos  & videos.
