This is not a technical post and it’s not related to the database world. It’s just a short experience I had with external HDDs as a simple user so I wanted to share it.
I have an Transcend external HDD for quit a while now. It’s a 2TB disk and it was very useful with my old laptop (where I only had 160GB SSD drive). Since I got my new laptop with 1TB SSD, I hardly use the external disk anymore, but I do keep backups on it (like a good IT guy). This disk contains a second copy of all of my pictures, some documents and other junk (called me old-fashioned, but I don’t want to backup all of this to the cloud).
