Looking for external hard drive
« on: September 13, 2009, 04:37:27 PM »
Dont need anything too big. 7200 rpm is preferred. I need this to back up important info, so want something reliable (and not just for a few months). Can anyone suggest one? And any good deal on it? Thanks

Just FYI (as I had to learn the hard way) If it's important data dont get a portable 2.5", get the full size 3.5" hard drives which are far more reliable.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
