My bloviated meandering follows what Wolf K graced us with on 3/14/2018
I'm looking for another external drive or two. My usual source has
both Seagate/Lacie and Western Digital. It looks like 1 or 2TB are the
smallest ones these days.
What are your system specs? If it support USB3 then either WD or Seagate
are good choices. I have two WD Passport 2TB portable drives which I use
for full clone weekly backup purposes, alternating weekly. Which both WD
and Seagate come with DiscWizard (a slimmed-down Acronis), I use the
free backup program Reflect
it does a clone backup up the system without having to reboot the system
in monitor mode.
Lacie prices are double Seagate models of same capacity - is Lacie the
better quality version of Seagate?
Western Digital models are generally in same price range as Seagate.
Or should I look at other brands? I'm willing to spend up to about
$100/terabyte for greater reliability.
All advice and recommendations gratefully received and carefully
I've tested booting from the backup'd drive and it worked splendidly.
