"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984

She should use multiple USB drives so she can have a grandfather, father, son backup scenario. 64 GB drives should work for her 50 GB backups but try one before buying more.

Some of the drives want to run additional software. I don't let them.
If you decide to go the portable hard drive route, don't put every image on there just in case the hard drive dies. Either buy 2 external hard drives or rotate between the external and a USB stick so you have at least 1 source for an image.

I use one of these. The usb3 is as almost as fast as the pc drives. With it I can copy to and from the pc or with two ssd/hdd's inserted copy and paste between them.
You'll never need to install it again

Here's something I wrote a while ago on backup strategies: Options for Backing Up Your Computer [PDF]. It doesn't get into mentioning specific products, but does give an overview of the various types of backup technologies and methods available. It's a few years old, but aside from discussing storage capacities is is still fairly current.
