You can just use an external hard drive which will plug in via USB. Seagate makes a Backup Plus Slim in a 1TB and 2TB. Western Digital has one with built in security. Portable is external as the other kind would be internal.

My 1 and 2tb my books are external hd. I have a small hd 500 or so gb that is solid state that is portable

I think that may be what the op meant


I wouldn't wanna be carrying around those my books as they are kinda big plus they have a standard hard drive which would be much easier to corrupt if your moving it around all the time

But I have had them for sometime. I really wanna get a large sshd for my MacBook for backups but they are still pricey
