Hi, I'm not very tech savvy so I'm not sure if this is the right area to post this about but I was wondering if external Hard drives larger than 2-4 terrabytes that are only powered by USB exist. As in all I would have to do is plug it into my laptop or tower and bam, it's ready.

I'm asking because I don't have a custom tower PC or a custom laptop that I can just buy a large internal hard drive for. I only have a laptop that was store bought.

If anyone knows of any or any particular brands you think are better I'd like to hear about them and check them out. I currently have a seagate 2 terrabyte external. No problems so far.

Thank you,

Jordin

Do you really mean something larger than 4TB or do you mean a large external hd in the range from 2 to 4 TB?

I rely on Western Digital.

Most laptops are store bought, and most laptops allow for replacing the hard drive with a bigger one. Custom laptops aren't really a thing anymore, you can customize laptop when buying from the manufacturer but those base models are the same ones that go to a store.

What laptop do you have?

triple 6--I think he wants a hardrive larger than a 4 terrabytes--
I looked at new egg & they only have one----
a 8 terrabyte that is 2 hardrives in a case paired together---
if he is a film / movie maker or photographer then that monster
wouldn't be very practical to cart from film site to film site

so we are in the dark on exactly what he wants & what to use for
