I want to buy a 2tb-3tb HDD to store my photo backups on. (1tb would be enough but they cost quite a lot more per/tb)
I already have my photo library on a external HDD but want to backup my photos on a Internal HDD somewhere.
What one would be a good choice? I want reliable over cheapest.
I have already read to avoid Seagate.
Also is there a way to turn the HDD off when I am not using it (on startup?) to make it last even longer?
EDIT: Would buying 2x1tb (or 2x2tb) HDDs and running them in RAID 1 be a better choice?
