The best portable SSDs are great for adding extra storage to a laptop for photo editing, as well as keeping your photos and videos accessible when you're on the go. Trouble is, capacities can often be restrictive compared to some of the best portable hard drives, with 2TB (terabytes) being the upper limit, until now.

WD has just announced four of its current portable SSDs will soon be available in a 4TB capacity option (in addition to existing smaller capacities). To put this in perspective, that's enough space for around 33,000 uncompressed Sony a7R IV raw files, or over seven hours of high bit rate 4K/30p video.
