Backing up the data on your computer is never a bad idea. 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. Amazon 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.
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 costs a little bit more at $150.
