I have 2 internal 500GB Harddrives.
1 for Operating Systems.
1 for Library (seems enough for now).
I am using the Library one also to edit my videos.
But sometimes, I am having trouble with the space (after the library there is just over 100 GB left).
I am looking for an external hard disk that I can use as always connected to the computer, so I can edit my videos in there (editing videos usually means videos + sounds, and other related files).
I have Seagate Expansion 2 TB USB 2.0, WD My Book Essential 2 TB USB 3.0 (working with USB 2.0 port), and as portable external. I have Toshiba Canvio Plus 1 TB USB 2.0.
Do you have any suggestions about which one to use as always connected?
You can also suggest other hard drives too (doesn't necessarily needs to be using USB port, I have a router and e-sata, firewire - I hope that is the 1394 port, right - and also an express card slot connection also).
For some reason I am not able to feel right with leaving the hard drives connected always, but actually that is the reason I am buying them.
I have heard some bad reports on Seagate Expansion, luckily mine is still working without problems so far.
I mean should I just go with luck -usually what goes with electronics nowadays - and use a drive always connected, or are there specific and better choices out there or within the drives I own?
I don't own an unlimited power supply (where my computers are staying, there have been power cuts a few times), and time to time I am having blue screen problems, I hope these won't affect the drive being connected always.
