What is the best external hard drive in terms of privacy, security and storage capacity? Should I wait for a better one coming soon?
I’m looking for minimum 2tb of space (the more the merrier), don’t mind the cost
Privacy has become a very important issue in modern society, with companies and governments constantly abusing their power, more and more people are waking up to the importance of digital privacy.

much thanks to @gary_host_laptop for the logo design :)
I don’t think that brand matters much from a security standpoint, although I’d avoid any external drive with built-in wi-fi.
If you want a blend of privacy and convenience, one option may be to have more than one partition on your drive. On my portable SSD, I have one convenience/media partition that can be read by all of my devices: computers, tablets, windows computers. My financial/medical/business records are on a luks-encrypted second partition. I could probably have done something similar with bitlocker, but I’m much more likely to pull up my encrypted stuff on a linux machine.
