    A couple of 32 GB thumb drives? Preferably USB3. or a 128Gb SSD in a USB3 external holder...I have one of those and it is very useful.

    USB3 is most likely faster than any Cloud service.

    Amazon. 32Gb thumb drives around $10-12 each

    An external enclosure to fit a 2.5" ssd about $15-20 128Gb 2.5" drive about $40

    Best Buy, Newegg or even your local computer store.

    Well any cloud service gives you free space but if you want more you can buy it. Google Drive gives you 15GB for free.

    Best Buy External drive
