Re: What a shock!
After reading Barry's problem with the drives I was just about to mention the SSD's but John beat me too it. You can now buy SSD's [solid state drives] very cheaply ie.Kingston 240GB @£24.95from mymemory. I buy them ,then buy the enclosures from ebay. Fit the drive into the case , it will come with a USB cable then your good to go. These SSD's are cheap ,quick and have no moving parts to seize. Just to add , I will NEVER ever buy drives in terabytes .1T or 2T or larger .If you put all your data onto a large drive and something does happen and it developes a fault ,getting data from a 2T or larger drive is very difficult. If it becomes corrupt you lose the lot . I use 500GB ,320GB or less and back it up twice . I would rather use 2 x 500GB [this equals 1 terabyte] than one larger drive.
