Kids are tough on things. They accidentally drop reserve bags and backpacks on tough, concrete surfaces or careless plop them onto the wet floor. So how will an external drive consume? While being in a metal case averts, direct contact with the hard disk, it is still quite vulnerable to drops and drops while turned on. Teach your student how to take care of their hard drive while it’s running.


But after turned off, the best external hard drive can withstand a certain amount of abuse. But like most of electronics, your external drive doesn’t work well when exposed to water or moisture. So that the best way I have found to provide a little extra padding for the instance plus give it nice waterproof cover, it to purchase one of those soft-sided, insulated lunch bags you can get in any department store.


These lunch boxes have been already waterproofed or at least water resistant, have nice roomy interiors large enough for many enclosures with space to spare to cables and power cords. They have soft padded sides which add a second layer of protection for the drive. Plus as an extra bonus, these bags are so common place, they do not signal”steal me!” Like notebook cases do.


Now that you know just a little bit more about external hard drives, then you’re ready to do some researching on your own to locate an driveway that fits both your student’s lifestyle and your budget.



External hard drives are the perfect medium to store your backup data.


For all those who have come to your senses and realize just how significant a normal backup of your information is, I congratulate you.


An external hard drive is a hard disk which resides outside (external) of your pc case and connects to a PC via a USB, Firewire, or eSATA cable. The external drive provides an excellent solution for people who want to backup their personal computer files, photographs, and audio.
