Portable Hard Drive

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

 

Need some advice about hard drives for backup. I'm going to buy a new hard drive for backup for my iMac G5 and MacBook. I'm looking for a terrabyte (I believe that's the largest capacity right now?)

 

My budget for this tops at about $750 right now. Am I dreaming??!!

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks

Glen

The largest hard drive available is 2Tb. As for portable, do you mean desktop external or the small ones? The small external drives top out at 500gb at the moment.

You can get a LOT of storage for less than $750. Though, it does make a diff whether you are talking desktop external or portable.

 

With that budget, you could really do it right and get one of each - a big external for Time Machine as well as Full SuperDuper/Carbon Copy Cloner bootable backups and a portable for the really critical stuff (financial info, photos, etc) that you can manually put that stuff on and store it off site.

 

OWC ( MacSales.Com) has good stuff as do your local Best Buy, Fry's etc.

LaCie covers your needs - including NAS drives which are only a shade higher in price - and they look better than most.
