We know that everything is moving to the cloud. It's been well documented and their is surely a lot to love about cloud storage. However, not everything that goes up always comes down. At least not if your Wi-Fi goes out or if you can't get internet connection.

That's why it's still a great idea to back up your footage locally and on hard drives that you can leave at home or take in the field with you.

So for this "Deals of the Week," we're going to share some great (and solid) hard drive options worth considering to keep your footage backed up and safe.
