Although your computer has an internal hard drive, it can fill up quickly. This can cause slow performance and may even result in your computer crashing. An external hard drive is like a storage locker for your computer, freeing up space for new images, videos, and more. It also serves as a backup in case your internal hard drive crashes. When you convert VHS to digital and save it to an external hard drive, footage is more accessible and easy to view whenever you want. In their original format, home movies and videos are vulnerable and subject to the ravages of time. So when you digitize home movies, why take the chance of subjecting them to ongoing vulnerability? Many experts suggest storage in the cloud as well as two external hard drives (one stored locally and another at a different location), but one external hard drive is better than none.
