Hi, i am planning on buying a 3TB External HDD to backup some files of my 3 different PCs. 2 of them Windows XP Pro Sp3 x32, and one Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
Do you have anny recommendations for a good drive and program? Are the included Bakcup software good enough for handling 3 different computers?
Here are the 2 options that i have in mind, but please recommend me others if you think there are better solutions on a "smilar" price range...
Seagate Backup Plus 3 TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive (STCA3000101)
WD My Book 3TB External Hard Drive Storage USB 3.0 File Backup and Storage
LaCie 3 TB Porsche Design P'9230 USB 3.0 (302003)
LaCie 3 TB Minimus Hard Disk USB 3.0 (302004)
Also please clarify me this. I read somewhere that 3TB HDDs or 4TB HDDs where "better" or more "reliable" than 2 TBs , because they have more platters? or something like that.....well i dont remember excactly the words...But i know somebody mentioned that a 3TB was better for some reason, besides the obvious of more space to store files....
