Devices can crash or break, potentially losing pictures, videos and key documents if they’re only stored in one place. You can help avoid that situation by investing in an external hard drive, and Crucial makes a variety of popular options.

It doesn’t offer the fastest transfer speeds — though its 800MBps top speed is hardly slow — but you can get a much higher capacity X6 for less than faster SSDs of the same size. And it’s faster than a spinning-disk hard drive, regardless.
The X6 is a compact storage solution that is small enough to fit in your pocket or be thrown in your purse or laptop bag when you’re on the go. It’s durable, too, having been tested to ensure it can withstand a 6.5-foot drop as well as being resistant to shocks, vibrations and extreme temperatures.
