Every IT boffin I know advise to get an external hard drive no larger than 250GB as they will fail one day, the bigger the storage device the more you will loose, it will cost £400 ish to get one recovered by a professional if the data is important

£120 Gb though.... what use is that?

I hope that's sarcasm?

very good price for a 120gb disk which is very small and needs no psu, very handy.

120gb is enough to backup my music and images so it'll do for me :)

Very good price for a slim portable HDD. 120gigs is plenty for portability.
5 years warranty is a bonus.

I'm a self confessed 'IT boffin' yet have multiple hard drives over this capacity - while having two 3 x120GB drives instead of 1x320GB drive means I only lose a third of the data but that's not acceptable as I've still lost that data and it will still cost thousands to recover. Therefore the whole idea is rather pointless.

My advise as an IT professional to anyone is simply never have a single copy of any data that's important to you, I carry around drives like these to keep routine backups of laptops (and recommend them to others for the same purpose) which over less frequent periods are backed up to high capacity desktop drives. If the 2.5in external drive fails there is an up to date copy on the laptop it came from and in the unlikely circumstance both fail simultaneously I fall back to the desktop drive.

sometimes its a case of removing the internal drive and connecting via sata or ide to your mobo, might then be able to access it as a second drive if something like this fails, hot deal btw, despite the moronic comments

Most 2.5" portable drive are 5400rpm or 4200rpm. There are newer ones that can run at 7200rpm, but they'll be double the price.

Don't get confused with the larger (3.5") desktop drive which usually run at 7200rpm.

if your data is that important and cost thousands to recover, why not get a web hosting ?
hostgator provides 1000 gb for 12.5 dollars a month.

..because it will take forever to upload it all !

USB speed = 30mbyte/sec ...
adsl upload = 1MBit at best (0.1 mbyte/sec)
i.e. 300 times slower

If you can buy 2x 120Gb backup drives for the price of 1x 250GB then do so,
with backups is better to have multiple copies on multiple drives,
so a single drive failure doesn't make you cry !

Because I don't need to do any recovery, I simply ensure no data that is vital to me is unique to one hard drive. It would take forever and a day to upload everything to a webhost rather than the few minutes it currently takes to do my backups.
