    You might consider getting 2 3TB ext HD. Better and better photo/graphics/pictures technology often means more and more byte-space needed. If the Cloud cannot be reached for some reason, you have a backup of the backup, and in different locations.
    Which Windows?

    Set a budget of how much you want to spend and then buy the largest drive you can based on that budget. Having a backup drive that is too big is never an issue but having one too small could cause make it so you need to decid3e what can be backed up and what can't.
