The LaCie Rugged mini 2 TB portable external hard drive is a must have for studio backups. You travel to a recording session or for work in your home project studio, you need to do a backup. Get two and keep it's mate in a secure place like a safe deposit box. Then swap them out, so you always have a current backup with you and the other in a secure location.

Too often people forgot to do a backup, have a hardware problem or make a mistake and erase something, and now their work is lost. The data recovery services are very expensive and results can't be guaranteed. This is an amazingly low-cost preventive measure to take. No monthly costs involved and you can take it anywhere. The rugged part is important, because with a portable drive it might get knocked around a bit and that added protection will come in handy.
