Don’t neglect external hard drives as useful backup tools

While cloud backups are common, they may not be as secure as you think. Cloud storage can go offline just like any other internet service and leave you unable to access vital files. In the worst-case scenario, your cloud storage provider can experience a data breach. External hard drives can be reliable physical backups for your data so you’re protected even if the cloud goes offline. In addition, they shield your personal and sensitive data from potential cyber threats, ensuring your information always remains confidential and secure.
