What is the largest external hard drive?
The IBM 3380 and 3390 are the largest I ever saw - the size of a refrigerator and weighing in at about 550 pounds.
String four of those boxes together along with a control unit and you have a huge honking 10 GB of heavy metal (oxide) storage.read more collapse
Here you go:
Biggest Sold on Newegg is 16TB:
I would recommend getting a 3TB from Staples (with USB 3.0)for $159.99: http://www.staples.com/HP-3TB-External-Hard-Drive-USB-3.0-and-USB-2.0-USB-3.0/product_923766
But First go to Ejunkie and buy a coupon: ($30 off $150) for $2.99
So basically $27 off $159.99 bringing your total to: $132.99 for a 3TB External Hard Drive.
Just an FYI on USB2.0 vs USB3.0--- USB 3.0 transfers 10x faster than USB 2.0 and if you are moving over terabytes of information, YOU WANT 3.0!
I'd love to have 1 Exabyte of storage:
Bit Single Binary Digit (1 or 0)
Byte 8 bits
Kilobyte (KB) 1,024 Bytes
Megabyte (MB) 1,024 Kilobytes
Gigabyte (GB) 1,024 Megabytes
Terabyte (TB) 1,024 Gigabytes
Petabyte (PB) 1,024 Terabytes
Exabyte (EB) 1,024 Petabytes
