You ever think to yourself "Man, I really need a hard drive with enough space to store all the data in the world" and "I need it at a discount"? Well, here you go! The WD My Book 12TB external hard drive is on sale for $199.99 on Amazon. That price is $60 off what it normally goes for, and it's the only discount we've ever seen on this drive. It hit this price right before the new year, so it could also expire at any time now.

So this is a large enough drive that you're not going to want to take it with you anywhere. Just set it up on your desktop and connect it to your computer and use it as external storage you can access at any time. It has some good extra features for making the most out of all that space. For example, you can set it up to work with WD's backup software. It will automatically backup your computer, and it's safe to assume your computer doesn't already have more than 12TB of space. It's also compatible with Time Machine for Mac, so you can back up that way as well.
The hard drive can protect all the data stored on it, too, with password protection and hardware encryption. It uses a USB 3.0 port for data transfers with fast speeds up to 5 Gbps, but it's also USB 2.0 compatible if you need to go backwards a generation.
WD has a reputation to keep when it comes to hard drives, so this one has been tested to withstand shocks and drops, and it's built to last for a long time. The whole thing is covered by a three-year warranty from WD as well. This is a series of drives that users give 4 stars out of 5 based on 2,369 reviews.
