It's better to be safe than sorry when it comes to backing up the data on your computer. Whether you want to make a copy of precious family photos or archive some important work, you won't regret having done so if something were to happen to your computer. It only takes a couple of minutes to run a backup, and it could end up sparing you a serious headache down the road. 

Right now, you can pick up a spacious 2TB SanDisk SSD at a huge discount to make backing up your data much more affordable. Today only, Best Buy has it on sale for just $120, saving you over $100 compared to its list price and dropping it to within a couple of dollars of the lowest price we've seen for it. Amazon is also matching the sale.

This SanDisk SSD prioritizes speed over durability, but it's still protected against drops of up to 2 meters. It's equipped with a second-gen USB-C 3.2 interface, and boasts impressive data transfer speeds of up to 520MB per second. It's also smaller than 4 inches and weighs just 1.4 ounces, so it's easy to toss it in your backpack and take with you on the go. And with a storage capacity of 2 terabytes, it can handle a full back-up for most laptops and desktops. If you do want something that's a little more rugged, you could instead opt for the 2TB SanDisk Extreme, though it's not quite as affordable at $170.
