So I guess I just noticed my 2TB external HDD that I had on my desk failed as windows no longer sees it and erros when I plug it in. So I'm still trying to troubleshoot that to see if I can recover anything from it, but in the mean time I guess it's tune time for a new hdd backup. looking at the 1-2TB range hoping to keep it under $100 though cheaper is better. It doesn't have to be super OMFG fast as it's purely just a secondary data drive, hell it could even be a normal 3.5" drive I just got a great deal on the external 2TB drive 3 years ago. I've only every really bought WD storage and so far I've not had any issues, are they still good or are there better options? I know this is one of those "he said she said" battles as to personal experiences I just want to see what's out there on the market today.
