Yes, I do. This particular HDD, however, will exclusively be for my personal laptop instead of the company laptop where a portable HDD with a full backup is used if there is no WiFi to access a cloud service. I can get by with not having access to personal (not work) files via the cloud while away as I do have physical backups at home.
