  • Buy a portable hard disk drive (HDD) unit – They can range from
  • $100 to $250 depending on the storage size and other bells and whistles. You’ll want to think about how much capacity you’ll need over time. A portable hard drive with 640GB capacity can store up to182,000 digital photos, 168,000 digital music files or 520 downloaded digital movies. While that may sound like a lot – think about all of the different files you are creating on an annual basis. Over time,you may actually have to add more capacity.

Click below to read the rest of the tips and enter this great giveaway!

  • Look for portable hard drives that come with the backup software pre-loaded onto the drive – it will be easier than having to load it with a separate DVD. Also, look for software that is easy to use for regular people that may not be familiar with data backup. Products like Toshiba’s Portable External Hard Drive feature simple process that guides you through all of the steps to safely and securely protect your digital content.
  • All backup software is different, so ideally you can find one that offers an easy backup solution that enables you to set it and forget it, knowing that it is running in the background and all of your material will be securely backed up.
  • Look for complete system backup – When selecting a HDD, be sure to find one that offers complete system coverage, as this will help restore your entire computer if your system goes down.
  • Are you techno-savvy? – For those of you who like to fiddle, many drives let you change the settings to personalize your storage preferences, such as timing for back up, security, etc.
  • Sleep easy – Once you have your backup drive in place, you can rest easy knowing that if your computer dies, you precious memories are protected.

  • Marie N

    Subscribed and confirmed to your email digest. Thanks for the opportunity to enter this great giveaway.

  • Marie N

    The very first thing that comes to mind is all my digital photos. We’ve taken and uploaded hundreds of photos over the past two years of our little Zoey. She has an amazing personality that just seems to come through in her pictures. Its also a chronology of her growing up which is something we don’t ever want to forget. Next is my youngest son’s skateboard designs. He has started air brushing skateboards with his own designs and they are getting positive feedback from everyone who sees them. I loves to draw them on his computer first before actually painting them and I think it would be a good idea to keep them as a template. He also will be getting a head start on college this summer and I’m sure we can find plenty of uses for a external hard drive. As we all know there is nothing worse than losing your homework.

  • Pamela

    I have tons of pictures and videos of my kids sporting events. Having an extra hard drive is an excellent way to preserve those memories and not take up the disk space on my computer.

  • Sarah

    I have over 20GB of music on my computer -all bought, but the cd’s are looooong gone! I don’t know what I’ll do if my computer crashes!!!

  • Melinda

    I have pictures on my computer from since my oldest child (8) was a baby. It would also be a great option to have a dedicated hard drive to put their pictures on & not worry about draining space from my computer.

  • Melinda

    We homeschool, so we have a lot of important school information and files on our computers. It would be so nice to have it all in one place and the security of not losing it if our computer crashed!!! Great Giveaway!!!

    ALways great to have a place to back up all the music I’ve copied from my old lps.

  • Jean F

    I already use an external hard drive to backup, but like any hard drive, they don’t last forever. Backing up the articles I write is the most important reason I back up.

  • christy

    I’ve got lots of important stuff on my desktop hard drive for work and family – - would like to have a safe place to create and store backups for the computer – - the external hard drive would be the perfect add-on to handle this task!
    Just so happens I just purchased a Toshiba laptop – - would be a nice match!
    thanks!

  • Jaime

    Definately my photos that I keep on my computer! Those can’t be replaced. Entry #1.

  • http://hotprints jeanean

    I would be great for peace of mind to know that my husband didn’t delete the “history” of our family by deleting pictures

  • Jenn

    I would LOVE one of these. They are super trendy. With 3 kids under 4 I definitely have a lot of videos and pictures. Not to mention all the files that need to be backed up from my home based business….

  • Andria

    Just like everyone else PICS it is

  • Karen Pochodowicz

    Pictures are definitely the most important but I also really would like to back up some recipes I have on my computer too.

  • Karen Pochodowicz

    I am sure everyone has this answer but pictures. I have so many pictures on my computer that I would be devastated if I lost.

  • Sunnie

    I need to backup family pictures!

  • bebe

    I am a sports photographer, so definitely my photos!!

  • Christina

    Videos. I’m fighting a virus on my computer, and I am really scared I’m gonna lose videos and pictures of my sister & family. The portable hard drive would let me save everything and restore my computer. My sister is in the Army, and is in Afghanstian and having the videos of her and us laughing are absolutelty priceless.

    We just had our computer crash (thanks to me) and what we are missing most is our music, pictures, and videos. A few documents were important too.

  • Jonez

    Just like everybody else, I’ll use to to backup my pictures. Vacations, family events, everyday events… they all add up. Oh, and my extensive music collection.

  • Erin

    Pictures, of course! I still haven’t done my son’s baby book… so loosing the picture files would be tragic.

    I could really use this!!!!!!!!! I have a large music collection on my computer that i really should back-up (cause’ you know it would take forever to upload all of the songs etc i have on their if anything should happen to the computer). Especially since i needed to get my laptop defragmented/cleaned this weekend. It didnt mess up any of the music or picture files but still it made me think i ‘ve been putting the backuping on the to-do list a little to long. Its something I think we all need to do but its one of those things we dont want to go out to buy and spend the time doing. Especially if your not to tech savy like me.

  • Maura Philipps

    I REALLY wish I had this a few years ago before my computer crashed. The story is that we had saved for years to take our kids on a Once in a Lifetime Walt Disney World Top Notch Trip. We literally did everything you could and had all the pictures to prove it. I uploaded all of those pictures on my computer and had every intention of backing them up & printing them. I never did :(
    A few weeks later my computer crashed and it was so bad that the pictures could not be saved. I was devastated. I still am. I cannot believe that those memories cannot be shared with others!
    This would be awesome for me to have. Thank you SO much for this giveaway!

  • Emily

    I work between 3 computers, I have photos, videos, music and documents that support all of my genealogy research. My MAC crashed recently and I had not backed up all that data. I had to rescan and find all the old documents and pictures — I currently have them stored in dropbox — web storage. It would be great to have them somewhere that was dependable and I could update.

  • Janna A.

    I have tons of pictures to backup! :)

  • Alisha

    I need to back up my homework for school.

  • Bonnie

    I’m in my last year of college for my Bachelors of Fine Arts in Photography. I could really really use this. Right now I am just using a million cds to save everything. This would really help me out and keep me more organized. Come on who needs it more than the broke college kid? lol

  • karen young

    I really need to back up my photos !

  • Isaac A.

    Thousands of photos of my family, and some music too.

  • Timbo

    Also, we might also wish to backup secure or sensitive documents onto the hard drive and then be able to store it in our bank’s safety desposit box, just in case we might need to access it. You know, things like an inventory of the things in our house (in case of fire), our personal financial data (in case of identify theft), personal business documents, etc. :D

  • Cassie

    Since I am always taking pictures of the beautiful kids I babysit, sports action shots from my sisters’ softball games, and fun family outings, pictures are the one thing I need to back up the most. Pictures are my favorite hobby and they are memories that you can never get back, they are priceless. Pictures are my life. So a hard drive to back up all these precious memories would be indescribable.

  • Skye

    My pictures!!!
    With 6 kiddos… I could REALLY use this!!!

  • Timbo

    Honestly, the one thing I could really use more space to backup would be the video files I have to edit up for my profession. We’re required to put together montage videos for sports teams and video takes up an incredible amount of space.

  • Vicky H.

    I need to keep my photos, music, and art backed up.

  • Amelia

    I would back up my pictures! being a new mom I have become a picture taking fool and this would be very useful!

  • http://www.inspiringoberlemommy.blogspot.com Jessica

    I need to back up family pictures most. I can’t loose pictures of my boys…. and I have a few times. Lets see. The dog chewed up one memory card and our computer crashed twice. You would assume we would have gotten one already but we haven’t.

  • http://auriette.blogspot.com Auriette

    My husband also points out that we could use the extra disk space to save the music files we are going to be making. I bought him a turntable that allows you to record LPs as MP3s right on your computer. I’m sure those files will take up a lot of room, too.

  • Chris

    I would back up my music and pictures. Most of the pictures are not backed up and I would be lost without them! :(

  • Hal Woodman

    So cool! What a great giveaway

  • malonegang

    I sure do need to back up my photos. I had a very close call and almost lost many before, you think I would have learned my lesson. This would be wonderful to have!

  • http://auriette.blogspot.com Auriette

    We used to be really good about moving stuff off the hard drive onto CDs. We have had some issues, though, with the CDs going bad or not being compatible with the “new” desktop (now four or five years old). We’d like to move everything off those CDs and onto an external hard drive. Then maybe we can start attacking the stacks of old floppy disks! We’ll gain a lot of room and make sure that the files are secure.

  • Jen S.

    This is a great giveaway!! I need to get my pictures backed-up. I’m so far behind and this would be great to have!

  • Cassie

    second comment of the day, look forward to my two comments a day tomorrow :)

    Jen

  • Cassie

    I’ve been looking at these for over a year now, waiting for a good deal. I have a 2 year old, and a one year old so you know I’ve got a bunch of pitures. I use my computer for school, play, and couponing! So it just keeps getting slower and slower, (I have a toshiba so it would be perfect). Thanks for all your hard work, and I will make my next comment shorter b/c you know I’m going to enter this more than once :)

  • Katie

    I love taking pictures. I travel internationally several times a year and have many amazing pictures. Unfortunately, I have no way to back them up and they are all on my laptop. There are too many and they are too big to backup on regular CDs and I do not have a DVD recorder. I would be devastated if I lost all of my previous pictures, especially our wedding and honeymoon pictures from last year.

  • Trista

    I was recently in a car accident and my computer was in the car with me, when I went to use my computer it wouldn’t work and it had all my homework for school and pictures of my family and future stepson on there. Luckily I managed to get the computer working again and then back things up onto a cd but I still get nervous about my computer now! I am having a baby in May and do not want to lose anything ever again, especially all the new pictures I’ll have.

  • Melissa

    We need to backup photos, financial info, and business stuff.

    I need to back up photos! Me and my husband are photographers and we never have enough storage space!

  • Ann F

    I need to back up my financial records, photos, videos and iTunes.

  • Katie

    I would love a way to back up my family photos. My parents don’t really take pictures so I am the historian of the family. I am in possession of every photo that has been taken in the last three years. Within that time my brother passed away suddenly and left two small children. I have pictures of him holding them both and opening Christmas presents, those pictures are the most treasured thing we have. Pictures will be the only way they will be able physically know their father; a mental image for them to go along with the stories we tell. Not only would I be devastated to lose those pictures but so would my parents, my niece and nephew (even though they don’t know it yet) and the rest of my family.

    On a brighter note, last year my parents and I went on vacation of a lifetime, we went to Italy. It was the most amazing trip ever! I have over 1,500 pictures of mostly the three of us and some of them include great candid shots of my parents.

    Unfortunately, our company downsized and I lost my job. It has been very difficult to find a new one and money is tight. I pray all the time that nothing happens to my computer as I cannot afford to buy an external hard drive and I have so many things that are priceless and irreplaceable.

    Have a great day!

  • Rachael K

    I need to back up the many many pictures of my two little boys.

  • Sara Z.

    I can’t imagine if all of my photos of my kids growing up just vanished. MUST…..BACK….UP!!! :)

  • Sarah

    I try to do as much scrapbooking and digital scrapbooking as I can with a 4 year old around. My computer is overloaded. I need to get more organized in order to create keepsakes for our family since photos and memories are the only way for my son to get to know his father who passed away from cancer when he was 4 months old.

  • Sara Z.

    I would use this to back up my pictures and music.

    I so need one of these to backup my iTunes!

  • Nicholas L

    …I forgot to mention that in addition to PICTURES being the most crucial reason to back up one’s files, you also need to consider in general how much your files in general are worth to you. Yes, $100+ for an external HDD may sound like a lot, but remember that saving files once your OS or computer in general goes bad or succumbs to a virus can cost upwards of $1000. Now I doubt any of us wants to spend that much to recover our files! Doesn’t ~$150 sound much more attractive now!?

  • Tina Winkeler

    I would love to have something like this for peace of mind knowing I would have my pictures backed up

  • Anu

  • Andrea J.

    Almost forgot…and this is a big one at our house…we use computers to run the media and lighting in our home. Each television has its own computer that serves up DVR’d tv shows and digital copies of movies we’ve purchased (the ones that come with them) that are stored in a central location. This chews up an incredible amount of space, but is totally worth the cvonvenience!

  • Anu

    I have to backup all the projects that I work on….

  • Andrea J.

    Must sound like a broken record, but pictures and home movies. I, too, lost the first 5 month of my daughter’s photos due to computer malfunctions. Oddly enough, it was while transferring the files from my tempermental desk top to my shiny new laptop that they got “lost” somewhere in copy over our wireless network. I’ve learned to have at least 2 copies of everything!

  • Debbie

    I mostly need to back-up pictures. We also back up my husband’s documents that are important to his military career and committees that he serves on.

    All the pictures I take of my kids. I’ve lost months of their lives because of issues with my old computer.

    Let’s see: pictures, videos, and the bunch of movies I’ve bought for the kids’ Ipod!

  • melinda

    totally using this to store my many pics!!

  • Nicholas L

    I think one word sums up why each of us needs to backup our files on a portable hard drive as often as possible…. PICTURES!!

    Music can re-downloaded, files re-written, programs re-purchased, etc. But can we ever re-take a picture?? Will we ever be in Washington, DC again just after a monstrous once-a-decade snowstorm hit during the sunset? I think we all know the answer… NO WAY!!

    Whereas in the past we always had that role of film from which we could re-print pictures if they were ever lost or destroyed, in this day and age external hard drives are our only way to ensure those priceless memories are never lost! BACK UP YOUR FILES ASAP!

  • Gail

    This would be great to store all my pictures and files!!!

  • Melanie Knight

    We have a ton of pictures and music! We’ve already lost a bunch of music because my husband didn’t back it up!

  • Jen Palmer

    I would definitely use it to backup photos of my almost 2 year old. According to my husband I have built up around 200 gigs already. He’s just my favorite subject! I’d hate to lose any of them!

  • Jess

    I would use this to backup all my pictures and most importantly, the videos of my daughters when they were first born at the hospital!

  • Courtney

    Definitely could use this for my pictures! We overloaded the computer the past two years because of my daughter being born.

  • Kirstie B

    I’ve got a lot of music and photos

  • Katie

    I would love to win this gift for my husband. He works so hard at trying to keep everything of importants to us, such as family photos to send to his brother, who lives in Florida. It would be great to have! :)

  • Elizabeth

    I always need to back up files and photos!

  • Char

    I would love to win this giveaway. I have multiple photos on my computer from a family project. My niece and I scanned in all the photos from mine and my 3 other siblings childhood and created digital photo frames for my parents for Christmas. It was a time consuming project but to see the joy in their eyes on Christmas morning to re-live the past at a click of a button instead of hauling out the old albums. They love the frames and I frequently change the photos for them to give them something else to enjoy. They have taken the frame to my aunt in the nursing home who has alzhiemers as she remembers the old times and nothing from the current times. Would love this to back up all those memories. Thanks for the chance to win.

    Awesome giveaway!

  • Nikki Livesey

    Hi,
    I would love to win the Toshiba hard drive. Recently I’ve been taking a photography class at my University and it requires me to take hundreds of photos per week. Since last semester my computer crashed during finals and I was lucky enough to be able to recover my files, I know that next time I might not be so lucky. I want to be able to back up all of my photos as well as the papers I write for class. I hope I win! Thanks!

    -Nikki

  • http://www.sweetsavins.blogspot.com/ courtney

    definitely need to backup all of our family pictures (and other important documents as well). With two little ones, I just don’t have the time to order prints and get them all in albums right now. So to have them kept in on a backup hard drive in a fireproof safe would give me so much peace of mind.

  • Lynda C

    I really need to attend to this. I have an old computer and lots of pictures and important tax info that should be backed up.

  • Snoogums

    As it happens, I did have a harddrive that got ruined just recently – has family pictures and videos (I didn’t have backup of everything…). Harddrive was sent to salvage company and I was told it would cost $1,647 to retract. Backup is a very good idea! Please enter me too and thank you! Great giveaway!

    I would back up our family photos, spanning nearly four generations! Photos have become such an important way of documenting our family history, especially as some of the older generation passes on.

    My computer is bogged down with the amount of pictures I have loaded on it!

    I so need this! I do back up my pictures on an external hard drive thinking hey I got it covered. Well silly me deleted all the pictures in my laptop so it would be cleaner and run faster. So what happens when the external hard drive crashes??? You got it! Years of lost pictures. Thankfully my cousin is married to a techie and he saved them all but I sweated that one out. I bought a new hard drive and he loaded them all back on there. But here i am again with all my pictures only in one place. I am looking for another hard drive so winning this would be just perfect!!

    Thanks for the chance.

    I work on-line with designs and photography, and the portable storage device I have that holds 500GB of data is already full! I need to backup my designs, my photogrpahy, and, most importantly, all of our family photos.

    Not to mention, we are a bunch of writers in this family, so we have lots of stories and poetry to back-up too. :)

  • http://www.lovinlifeonless.com Mamiv

    It is so funny you posted this today because I posted one of these because they are on sale at Amazon for $69 dollars which is a real steal for these. My hard drive crashed a few months ago and I was lucky that I was able to save my iphoto library of my son’s pictures since he was a baby. That would have been devastating. But, I did loose all of the software that I had purchased for my computer. Now, I have to repurchase or just do without. My main concern now is to be able to back up my blog in case something ever goes wrong. Better safe than sorry.

  • Debra

    I was laid off of work last year and have been taking care of my elderly mom who now lives with me. Last November her house burned down with her in it. Fortunately, the only thing that happened was her lungs were burned IT COULD HAVE BEEN WORSE. I also have three children at home with me and I’m a single parent. I have taken up writing children stories as a way to relax and take time for myself. Unfortunately, my computer is so out dated it can’t keep up with all my stuff. I would love to have this Portable hard drive to save all my writings. They mean so much to me and to lose them would be devastating to me. Thank you!

    I REALLY need to back up my pictures. I would also like to back up some specific files on my computer … quilting patterns, recipes, etc. that would be difficult to come up with if they were lost. My laptop is a couple of years old, so I’m starting to worry about it crashing and dying. I would love an external drive to take care of these issues. Thanks so much.

    We take tons of pics and videos of our 2 little boys. I’ve printed a few from the great photo deals you’ve shared, but most of them are just sitting on the computer scrolling by on the screensaver. I don’t know what we would do if we lost all of them!

  • Kristin

    Definitely need to back up pictures and iTunes! I’ve had one too many harddrives crash on me so you think I would’ve learned my lesson by now!

  • Ashlee

    I would absolutely back up all of my pictures. I have about five years worth on my computer, most of which are not scrapbooked yet (and at the rate I’m going never will be). It would be devastating if I lost them. I would also back up all of my documents and music files, I have a lot of those too!

  • Stephanie

    Our family takes a lot of digital photos of our trips, outings, family gatherings and special events. We want to hold onto them forever and be able to pass them on to our son. They are valuable memories. Going digital has its drawbacks, like if technology fails these memories could be lost forvever.

  • Heather C

    I have lost all ov my pictures of my older 2 kids from when they were younger when my computer crashed ;( I was devastated and need something to back up all of the pictures I have teken since then and in the future.

  • anthy

    2nd entry for my household! The photos are still the most important thing to backup. After that, there’s financial information, such as taxes. My dad in particular has a lot of business-related things that should probably be backed up in multiple places.

    Thanks again!

  • Stacey

    My absolutely favorite thing in the world is taking pictures of my 5 children and 7 grandchildren. The grandkids learn at an early age their grandma is the camera lady. I would be devastated to lose these pictures. The external hard drive would be perfect for this!

    I really need this for my 17 year old daughter. She is working on her portfolio that she will be submitting to art colleges and needs this so she won’t lose her work if something goes wrong with her computer.

  • Misha Turner

    I need to back up a lot of pictures and documents. I have a lot of photos that are years old of my family that I have yet to have developed. Most of my family has yet to come into the digital age so I tend to be the picture guru so I can try to catch as much as possible on film. I plan to get the pictures developed to make photo albums so that the memories can be passed on for many years to come. I would also like to backup my taxes and my school work. I completed my Master’s a year ago and I was required to write a 100 page thesis…whoo it was a lot of work and although I am finished school that is one piece of work that I would like to hold on to forever. Thank you for considering me in the giveaway!

  • Kimberly

    I’m a writer and I would be heart-broken if I lost all of my work.

  • Tatiana

    The pictures of my friends and family. I have them all stored on my laptop and sometimes think what might happen if my computer crashed. :(

    I have way too many pics and itunes songs that I am behind on backing up! My resume too!

  • Juli

    I love to take pics of my 2 little girls. I really need to back them up as I have taken so many of them and worry that I may lose them. Mr cards are always full!
    The day my 1st was born my old computer died and I lost lots of great pics! I don’t want that to happen again.
