    You can also get a version accepting both 2.5 inch, ans 3.5 inch drives.

    Have one on one of my machines, and just purchased a second for another machine, though I will have quite a lot of unscrambling to do first. Quite a lot of OS's on the device, and some of them storing their back-up or restore data on partitions of yet another disk, and the Linuxes sharing vm swap space, which for performance is a SSD, treated as an expendable.

    The solution is to not pay for "few years". All nine VPNs I listed offer either 1, 3, 6, or 12 months subscriptions. The longer you subscribe, the cheaper the price, but a bargain is not always a bargain. Ain't nothing says you cannot buy a month, then three months, then six months, then a year. You will pay more, but risk less. Test drives are worth the negligible extra expense.

    On the most basic level a VPN stops the sites you visit from knowing your IP address, and your ISP from knowing which sites you visit. Some VPNs include circumventing geoblocking, filters that nix porn sites, etc.
