Without a backup how does storing important information on an internal drive differ?

Does Xbox One have enough games to fill 8tb?





Bought this on black friday and been brilliant so far. I ripped out the drive and installed it for the games on my PC been very happy although 8TB goes a lot further than I thoughts already installed 50 games and only used about 1TB
@groppo Do you know the model of drive that was inside? Is it one of the Seagate archive drives or a different model?

How is that different from internal drives? Backups are needed regardless of where you store your data.

Can you post the model of the drive?

Why not just get a internal drive for cheaper

Why not just plug it in via USB

find an 8TB internal for £150? and i installed it internally so it didn't need the extra power source and removed the chance of it going bad due to the cheap caddy

Never checked a new drive prior to using it. Which software would you recommend for error checking?

Thanks.
Good price considering the cheapest I found for a 2TB was £80 or 4TB £119. So u get You double the storage plus two ports for an extra £30. Good value and it matches the design of XO

I use HDTune for error checking. First I write 8TB of data to it, if successful then do a full HDTune scan. Then a full erase and it’s good to go
Silly question but I’m assuming this can be used on any PC/MAC if it’s formatted correctly?

Yes, even Ubuntu!
Heat added btw, so tempted, but I bought the 1TB Canon drives on the earlier deals!

And from the factory it’s been sent across the ocean, loaded into multiple vans before being stocked in amazons warehouse the. thrown into some random delivery drivers car with loads of other boxes before getting to me.

Seriously, scan any brand new drive before putting any critical data on it. Even SSD’s can come out with corrupt silicon.

You obviously have no idea how hard drives work. The amount of time & effort involved in doing such a scan is pointless for home users (even enterprise users - can you imagine how much effort would be involved with scanning 12 petabytes of drives?) If your data is important you will spend that time on backups. Also a single hard drive should no be used to store critical data! There is a reason why the R in RAID stands for redundant...
This is HotUKdeals so I'll not detail any further, however I would encourage you to read up about MTBF & AFR, metrics which apply to all electronics - especially ones that use incredibly small electron paths - electon paths 1 electron widecannot guarantee an available electron to complete the circuit - and that has nothing to do with rough handling! (oops!)
