    External Drives And Cost


    Just bought a Seagate 4TB external drive for only £83 ($100???). Delighted. Now I have 5TB of external storage for all my docs and thousands of images

    Sounds good value- did you buy two so you can back it up?

    Another method is to buy a two disk "dock" for about £35.00, USB connected, self powered and OEM internal hard disks which are cheaper. The dock allows for very simple disk swapping with the added bonus of a self powered clone feature, doesn't need a computer to work.

    I've gone a different way lately, I have a number of tool-less 3.5" cases and a hot swap caddy in my Main system, my spare disks for backup, transport or just temporary storage are on a shelf in cases, (just storage cases similar to the old style VHS cassette case), so I can simply slot the drive into the caddy or if it's for use elsewhere it takes seconds to pop a drive into a portable USB 3.1 Case.

    I also have a few 1TB M2 SSDs in 10GB USB-C cases for use when more mobile and these will fit my laptop and phone in addition to my desktop
