Here's an assortment of the best drives at prices that will save you some money. (Get it? Because you save files? Yeah!)

Be sure to check back often, as we'll continue to update this page with all the latest and best storage deals.

This external hard drive bumps up your total storage capacity while saving you $5 off last week's mention and the lowest total price we've seen. (It's the best deal today by $20.) It features automatic and mobile backup options.
