Can anyone recommend a good (24x7x365) external drive (perhaps 100gb capacity) I can hang off our Dell PowerEdge 1950 server running Windows 2003 Server?  It will facilitate a WSUS installation so it doesn't have to be lightening fast (I would think).  Points will be awarded on response times and solution chosen. Thanks.

since i have that particular server also, i know what you're looking for.  theres many types of great 100GB external hard drives so what I'm going to do is point you in the right direction.

160GB is going to be SATA and those generally have a 20% duty-cycle, not 24x7.
