The Most (and Least) Reliable Hard Drives

The Most (and Least) Reliable Hard Drives

I have 9 external drives.  I dedicate each of them to a specific subject: Time Machine, Wildflowers, General Lightroom Backup, as well as other subjects and locations.

This link is to an interesting article about tests done on Toshiba, Seagate and Hitachi drives.  I mostly buy drives with firewire, rather than simple USB drives, for speed.  But have NOT had much luck with long-term storage on the Seagate USB drives.  It’s good to have my experience validated by testing.
