Ever thought to yourself, "Gee whiz, 9TB just isn't enough space for me!"? Well, here ya go. The Seagate Backup Plus 10TB external hard drive has dropped to $199.99 on Amazon. That's the lowest price on Amazon for this drive that we've ever seen. It has been selling for around $240 since June and was going for $270 before that. The 8TB version is selling for its regular $150 street price, so you're getting an extra 2TB for just $50 more.

The drive has two USB 3.0 ports, and you can use those to charge your mobile devices or transfer data from USB devices. Works seamlessly between Windows and Mac when the right driver is installed. Also has 2 free months of Adobe CC Photography Plan.

More than just a hard drive, the hub includes two USB 3.0 ports on the front. You can use these ports to transfer data like from a USB camera or thumb drive, but you can also look at them as charging ports for your mobile devices. Since this drive is large and will likely sit right on your desktop, it gives you some ports that are in a very convenient location for charging.

With 10TB of space, you should probably just start downloading more music and videos now so you can fill it up when it arrives. You'll be using this space for a long time. If you have a lot of storage on your computer already, you could use this as a backup for all that data. Just copy your computer over once or twice a month, and that way you'll be prepared for any emergency with the main system. It comes with Seagate backup software for just that purpose.

If you install the provided NTFS driver, you will be able to use the Backup Plus on both Windows and Mac computers. You can even seamlessly switch between them so you can move files to where you want them.

This deal comes with a free two-month membership to the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan. That's a $20 value since the Photography Plan is normally $120 a year. It includes access to desktop and mobile versions of Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. Seagate covers this drive with a two-year warranty.
