External DVD/CD
#21
I was so impressed by the MTBF figure of 180 years on my Intel nvme SSD that I bought another of the biggest size I could get (2 TB).  I put the 2nd one in a USB adapter, might collect a couple more.  It's possible for some program to erase them but other than that I figure it'll last my lifetiime.  This isn't offline storage, it doesn't actually get it out of the way.  But in an external unplugged USB adapter it almost is.  I put a few spinning rust hard drives into them too, if they aren't plugged in they aren't spun up and wearing out.

The ones that hold 3.5 inch drives have power supplies, the ones with laptop drives or nvme are USB-powered.  A 3.5 inch can go up to 10 TB I think, maybe more. I have a 2 TB laptop drive in one, but the PBP doesn't supply enough power to run it, it needs a powered hub.
