Frustrated, I decided to back up my smartphone photos to an external SSD.

Long ago, our ancestors wandered through electronics stores in search of ‘busphones’. It is a smartphone that costs about 1,000 won for a bus fare, but it is still to be bought at a better price. In order to buy on such a good condition, there will come a time when you will inevitably have to compromise, and at that time, you have compromised on the rate plan and the color of your device.

How about now? At this point, cheap smartphones are self-contained products. After purchasing a self-sufficient smartphone, choose the optional contract discount system, or sign up for a budget phone and use it at a low price. So, what should we compromise on now? Smartphone storage space. In order to buy a high-performance smartphone at a low price, you will accept a relatively low storage space.

If the storage space is small, it is necessary to back up photos and video contents periodically. However, backups are usually cumbersome. The cloud costs money and is slow and heartbreaking. It is cumbersome to connect to a PC and back up. Can’t we do it a little faster? So I decided to connect it to an external SSD.

External SSD that can be connected to a smartphone

What are the advantages of an external SSD over an external hard drive? External hard drives are slow and vulnerable to shocks. External SSDs are fast and shock-resistant. However, an external hard drive is better for the price/capacity ratio. But what if you need to back up your data frequently? A faster external SSD is probably better.

Even such an external SSD is not invincible. Even if you use an external SSD, you may lose data due to unforeseen circumstances. If you want to prevent that, Seagate’s external SSD with data recovery service is suitable.

Seagate Fast One Touch SSD Data Recovery 1TB (Seagate Fast One Touch SSD Data Recovery 1TB, hereafter referred to as Fast One Touch SSD 1TB) is an external SSD that supports data recovery. Among SSDs, it has a large capacity of 1TB and supports USB 3.1 interface. The speed is 1,030MB/s, which is the fastest among external SSDs. On the side of the product, the fabric material is applied, so it is soft.

Another important point is that the rescue data recovery service is provided for 3 years. If you apply for the rescue data recovery service, the data recovery success rate is over 90% on average. In addition, users can receive a Seagate hard disk of the same capacity when requesting the service. The price is 209,000 won based on 1TB. For reference, the price is as of May 30, 2022, and all products mentioned later will be mentioned according to the date.
