sata solid state drives are on the way out as PCIe models take over and if you happen to have an old internal one, then with a USB to SATA converter like the Sabrent EC-SSHD (opens in new tab)you can easily convert it to a portable SSD storage (2.5-inch SATA only) for just under $12 at Amazon.

Physically it looks like a long USB cable (about two feet long) with a weird connector at one end (that’s a SATA connector for those who didn’t know) and a USB 3.0 one at the other. There’s an activity light which indicates when the SSD is idling or in use.
