    I have to confess my main machine runs a SSD HD crucial 250GB Boot Drive but I would not trust them as a backup drive will stick with
    sata platter for as long as I can
    Well, who uses SSD for backup anyway? I don't. I only use SSDs as boot up drive. Data goes to HDD.
    SSDs can also be used as data drive. But backup?

    I agree.. spending that amount on backup would be a poor choice of money allocation.. IMO

    SSDs are getting cheaper guys, remind me to look at this tread in couple of years.

    True... but until they can compete with HDD for over 1TB I'll stick with a good old HDD.

    I have 2 1TB SSDs for backup, what is the big deal about this? I have had about 50 SSDs, never has one gone bad. Way I see it, my machine, my money, my call.

    One thing about most of us on the computer sites, we don't lack for passion in our opinions.

    There's no big deal.
    Just pointless in MY OPINION.
    The point of the SSD is to speed up your system. But if you have an SSD sitting doing nothing but periodically doing backups, that is a waste and pointless. But if your point is you have the money, well, that makes sense. Or if you told us in advance that you are into video editing or heavy graphic jobs, well, SSD for backups is a very good move.

    TBH - my main goal is speed - I can back up my OS drives very quickly - and very quietly - ALL opinions appreciated and respected, thanks to all who express them.
    I learn more from those that don't agree with me than those that do.

    We all share the same goal. If you separate your data from your OS, you virtually don't need to backup any of your data (in my case, my data goes directly to NAS in RAID 1 mode). It only takes 2 minutes to create an image backup of the OS if your data is on a separate drive. I hope you've learn from this, too.

    That is true. A statement of acceptance that you are more or less.... wrong.
