I need to replace the external drive used on a Windows 10 desktop PC for daily backups.
I want the most-reliable option available and am willing to pay somewhat more for it. I am open to an SSD solution if that is best. The functional needs are:
500 GB capacity (could even make do with 250 GB if needed)
USB 3.0 interface
The longer the warranty period the better (3-5 years if possible?)
What specific recommendations do you have?
You can purchase Samsung, Crucial, A Data, Seagate, Western Digital, SSD external harddisk or other normal external harddisk. 3 years of warranty is fine/available for them.
