Can someone tell me because I have no idea.
I've been surfing the net for a couple hours now trying to figure it out. So far, I still don't quite understand.
I'm thinking of buying an external hard drive to back up some stuff from my laptop because it's crapping out and it has a handful of virus' I can't seem to get rid of.
I need around 100gigs of hard drive space to be comfortable. (I wish they made cheap usb flash drives with that capacity)
In the past i've had a "Western Digital My Book" external hard drive that died after 3 months of normal use. I lost 500gigs of data, so I'm a bit worried and cautious now. I don't want to repeat that.
I've read countless reviews of hard drives (external, internal, solid state, esata/firewire...usb3.0 etc.) but one thing I noticed is that they all have the possibility of "failing" at some point or another. Why is this ?
