Rick Brown says:

I have had trouble with WD drives failing . The last 2 or 3 years I have been using Trancend Storejet drives. & I have found them to be much more reliable.

For temporary storage files either go on my internal SSD of my laptop (which has 650GB of free space at all times) or a 1TB Samsung SSD. I have never had more files even after a weeks trip than could be held on these. For taking files when I travel I have both a 16GB and a 64GB USB Thumb Drive I can use……. I don’t edit or sdo video other than very short clips a few times a year. Its mostly 20.9MP raw files.

Why not use google drive? You can download your photos wherever there is a computer and you do not need to worry about damaging your data if you drop your hard drive

Kelkschiz says:

This is not a product review, this is a superficial video about the differences between a portable SSD and HDD.

Joshua Taylor Madison says:

And don’t forget to partition your hard drive. It’ll last longer. In a 4TB drive: do 4 x 1TB partitions or 8 x 500GB partitions (depending on file sizes that you’re working with).

Jim Albruzzess says:

I use Seagate 4 TB hard drives. Same as WD, both are good. The only thing I fear is the day when it totally craps out and all of those files disappear forever. Backing up 4 TB of data is not so easy.

Alan Klughammer says:

good timing, I have that exact drive coming from Amazon tomorrow. I currently have a 2TB drive that is a bit small. for permanent storage I have a home made NAS (using unraid).
