Desktop drives have a large capacity and tend to be cheaper, but they do have to be plugged into a wall and your computer. I use these drives as extra backups, and also for my time machine backups!

Favorite desktop drive: Seagate Expansion 10TB

I love these drives so much, I have 12 of them! They are affordable and I haven't had any issues with them. I use these drives to store my sessions & weddings after they have been delivered to the client.

Favorite budget friendly: Lacie Rugged USB-C 4TB

A little more on the expensive side, but far more portable and reliable than most! I use this external hard drive as my "working drive" for weddings & sessions I've photographed. 

Favorite overall: Samsung T7 SSD in 2TB

If you work with large files, you probably have a few external hard drives laying around. Here's my most used and loved picks!
