I cannot emphasize enough the importance of backing up your personal files and imaging your hard drive. An easy way to get started on this is with an external hard drive. If you are looking for a quality drive, PCWorld just performed a review on a batch of external drives and ended up selecting the WD My Passport 4TB as the best external drive for 2017.
Lots of storage for less than the competition, attractive styling, and good performance with small files highlight this USB 3.0 portable hard drive. An excellent bargain. Source: PCWorld
