2TB hard drive is about the size of your cell phone.

I am cheap: While my cell phone is thinner than my WD-Passport 2TB hard drives, it is longer and the same width as my external hard drives.

I am not arguing against using external hard drives for backups. For many purposes, I think they are ideal. And the costs per byte, and the cost in bytes per cubic inch, are now comparable to magnetic tape. I recognize that the handwriting is on the wall.
