Portable hard drives
I’m looking to purchase a new portable hard drive and was wondering if anyone could recommend a model? I’m very new to this so any guidance would be appreciated. Thanks Smile

Look for reliability, and speed.

Ive had a 2tb seagate for a few years. No complaints.

1TB is enough in most cases honestly.

How long does an externa hdd last? If its not plugged in constantly. Only when im using it

The drives themselves last a while, but from my experience, the actual connection is what fails. Usually about 3-5 years, more if your careful and minmize like movement of the connection into the drive.
