I recommend Seagate Free Agent because it's 5 years warranty. Choose Desk" , Go", Go" Special Edition or XTreme" depends on your using purpose.

Not sure what is best? Can you recommend both?

I have read that the external drives don't work with SQL Server databases running on them. I need to have live SQL Server databases running, as well as storing backups.
