I use Amazon Glacier, it costs me about 20p a month to store 45gb of data. You only pay for what you use. If you just want a backup in case you lose your other copies it's great, even if your house burns down.
There is a good Windows client called FastGlacier.

Does anyone know if this are reliable for long time file storage?


I wouldn't rely on any hard drive for long term storage. Had several new drives fail on me. Always have multiple copies of valuable files. Just look at the amazon reviews and all manufacturers drives have lots of reports of failures.

Thanks for posting - presume this will be fine for Xbox One use? Was going to buy the Seagate version but I imagine there’s no need?

Correct 100%
I ordered the 2TB one as £13 isn't a great deal more for another 1TB.
Cant wait to install all of my games again!

Absolute nightmare having to manage with only the internal storage and keep uninstalling/install games to make space....
Thanks. Was holding out for the £5 off deal again!
Was looking at this for my xbox one games. I have a 2tb one i use for movies on my xbox one but thinking of getting one just for games. How do i install the games on the wd hard drive instead of it automatically going to the xbox hard drive?

No, it is not and hence warranted for only 6 months. It will last longer than that but dont use it for long term storage for critical data.

As per many reconditioned/refurbished items the guarantee is often less. A nearly new refurbished electrical item, will normally last as long as a new electrical item, so why will these not last very long?

Coz these are mechanical hard drives which previously had a fault and have been repaired. Hence you can very well use it for games and movies but not for storing pictures etc. Atleast i wont rely on a refurbished hard drive for storing critical data.

usually you will get newer model, bigger size and you transfer those files to the new drive. the new ones will be out usually 2-3 years, time to transfer critical files. and use the old drive for movies

I got the passport ultra 1TB for £21.99 last night which seemed like a better deal. Does anyone know why is this more expensive than the ultra?
Just ordered one. Good price for a quick backup drive.
Anyone wanting a free photos backup solution should consider Google Photos. You also get an awesome online gallery of your photos accessible from any webbrowser or where you've installed the app.
It does compress your images but unless you're shooting on an SLR and uploading RAW images you won't notice. Besides, having a copy of a photo regardless of compression is better than having no photo at all!
How do I use this with my Xbox one x do I just plug it in and then I can save my games on it ?
Just plug it in, Xbox will ask to format for use and then set it as location for installs. 2 minute job.
You can then move your already installed games one by one if you want to.

I'm sorry if I ask a stupid question, but does it work with Windows. Has any one has an experience. I'm asking that because on their website say is Mac
who has a NAS here? I got a synology nas and one of these USB drives and I am running hyper backup to a usb drive

unfortunately if the usb gets disconnected ungracefully then my hyper backups always fail as the USB drive becomes RO (read only) does anyone know how I can fix this? It has been driving me nuts for weeks. worth an ask on here.

I've a couple of these drives and they work fine for Windows. They are standard drives with a USB interface, so work on Windows, Linux, Macs and consoles.
Thanks Op

This will be used for the PS4 and is not for critical file backup as its still a refurbed hard drive.
Got the Red 2tb for £40.99
Would this be ok for a Wii U to install homebrew and games etc?
Just ordered. Thanks.
These recertified drives are an absolute bargain, the one i received was mint. Love WD drives anyway, very reliable never had issues.

Yes, though you may need to purchase a separate y-cable (mine needed one).

Should be, though homebrew itself is saved on the sd card. Ensure you reformat this to fat32 for Wii or GameCube games though (or create a fat32 partition for them)
Thank you, so what is better this one or the Ultra, as they seem both the same price. I'm tempted with Ultra.

Fortnite keeps them all happy.

You just need to format the drive once you connect it to the Xbox and away you go.
Thanks - just ordered

Thanks - had one on previously but needed it for other purposes so deleted the games as he only plays the one now.
Managed to get the 4TB WD my passport Ultra Metal (wd.com/en-…tml) earlier today and was hoping to use it as an external drive for PS4. Have been looking around the web but can't find any information on whether it works or not. Any ideas guys?
