Western Digital has expanded its SanDisk portfolio with the new 8TB SanDisk Desk Drive. Featuring the highest capacity yet on an external desktop solid-state drive (SSD), this new set is to revolutionize storage solutions for content creators and business professionals alike.

Expanding our SSD portfolio is the first step in offering creators backup solutions that deliver the speed and flexibility they need to unlock their creativity,” says Susan Park, Vice President, Consumer Solutions, Western Digital. “By next year, we expect to double the capacity of the SanDisk Desk Drive from 8TB to 16TB on a single desktop SSD.”
