The hottest hard drive and SSD deals on Prime Day

(Image credit: SanDisk)

Amazon Prime Day 2020 is now here, and there is now less than a day an half to go before it is all over for another year. One of our favorite things to pick up in these sales is more digital storage - drives that allow you to back-up and archive your photos, videos and files. If you are like us – you can never have enough of these. And fortunately they offer bigger capacities at better prices every year...

It is worth remembering that is prudent to have at LEAST two copies of all of your important digital files – so it often makes sense to buy your drives in pairs, to allow for failures and losses.

This is our round up of some of the juiciest drives available in this year's UK Prime Day sale - listed in capacity order from one terabyte SSD, right up to a monster 10TB desktop drive…

SanDisk 1TB Extreme PRO Portable External SSD: $154.99
This very SSD currently tops our list of best portable SSDs thanks to its exceptionally quick transfer speeds combined with its ultra-compact, rugged design. You'll need a fast computer to get the most out of its advertised 1050MB/s peak read speed, but you won't need deep pockets, as at £159.99 this Prime day, this is the lowest price we've seen on Amazon.com for this 1TB version.
