How to Hide Your External Hard Drive

In today’s world of technology are storing more and more of our lives in a digital format. We store our photo collections, movie collection and music collections digitally on our computer hard drives.

While storing all of these files digitally is incredibly convenient the downside is the risk that something will go wrong and we will lose all of our files and that means we lose our movies, music, photos and other important files.

It is because of this risk that it is very important we make regular backups of all of our important files and the best way to do this is through the use of an external desktop or portable hard drive.

The biggest problem with an external hard drive is that some people do not like having a small box placed on their desk and taking up some of their workspace.

If this sounds like you there are plenty of ways you can hide you external hard drive so it is not interfering with your desk or workspace. In fact there are plenty of ways you can hide your external hard drive so it is out of sight completely and you do not even know it is there.
