Bottom: 3 terabyte external drive, full of backups of the 2016 MacBook Pro.
Top: 5 terabyte external drive, to be filled with the 2022 Air.

Technology just vanishing up its own asshole here. Half the size, power and data over one cable, almost twice the capacity.

I was gonna plug the new drive into my desk setup but it's got a USBC cable and my desk hub only has USBA. I wonder if it delivers enough power over that to run this new drive.Let's see if the USBA-C cable that came with my tablet works, I'd replaced that with a USBC-C.

@anthracite USB-C is will supplant DisplayPort and HDMI too. Newer M2 MacBooks can even output HD video, be charged/powered, and provide an additional USB-A port from a single USB-C port+dongle.
