So recently I was gifted a portable hard drive (yay!), and it's a backup plus Slim. I'm not too familiar with portable hard drives, it's my first one, and I have a few concerns about durability. I currently am living away from home, and don't have a computer, so the only access I have is a computer lab. I've been bringing it back and forth to the computer lab in my backpack, and it's a 15 minute walk.
Is that the best thing for the hard drive to endure? Just thinking about it, the hot sun and the jolts from walking might not be good for it. Or are they built pretty tough and are resistant to that kind of thing? What should I do if I need to bring it back and forth?
Thanks in advance!
