Windows 10: External Hard Drive Capacity?
External Hard Drive Capacity?
Given my new PC has 2TB then should I have a 2TB external hard drive for backup? I'm considering nothing other than equipped capacities. Truthfully, I currently have no idea how much of that 2TB will be used. I just want to be on the safe side.
Yeah, sure, more the merrier.
There are few scenarios for backup.
1 on 1, where you copy everything (or let some program do it for you) to backup disk.
Use a backup program to do incremental backup of just some type of files.
Use a backup program that has archiving to use less space (Macrium Reflect for instance).
Manually copy files/folders to it.
I may not be an average user but I have more space taken up by backups on various external disks than on disks mounted in the computer because I keep most important stuff on external disks all doubled up.
This is a common issue I am experiencing. Why is my hard drive's disk use so high? Is there anything I can do that doesn't adversely affect Windows or my computer?
