Get the Seagate Expansion 10TB hard drive (opens in new tab) for just $169.99 at Amazon right now. The drive has a street price around $190 and has jumped up as high as $215 recently since it sold out after the holiday shopping season. Its best price ever was a drop to $160 for Black Friday, so today's deal is only $10 off that mark. That's some pretty good savings then and well worth the price given how much space you're getting.
Ten terabytes is just so much space for a hard drive! Don't worry about having to put it inside your computer, either, because it will sit right on your desktop. It has storage that will last you for years. You can keep all your big files on it, and you don't have to worry about adding more. Fill it up with movies, photos, music, and anything else you can think of.
The drive is plug-and-play, too. Just connect it to your computer and it will automatically work. The system should recognize it and get it working for you. You won't need to install any software or drivers. And once it's up and working you can transfer your files with simple drag and drop. It's compatible with both Windows and Mac computers, though the latter will require a simple reformat.
It does have a power adapter in addition to the USB connection to your PC. This external hard drive comes with an 18-inch USB 3.0 cable and an 18W power adapter. Seagate also backs it up with a one-year warranty.

I grabbed one of these during the last price drop, and it's been great. I use it to back up my NAS, along with long-term storage for disk images that I don't need to have immediate access to. It winds up being convenient "offsite storage"-- once a month, I back up the NAS, then it goes back in to my storage locker down the road. It could just as easily fit in a safe deposit box. For the price, it's more than worth the security of knowing I have yet another copy of my files, and one that's remote.
