Default 8 and 10 TB hard drives.

I have a 6TB hard drive and 2 more for backups - one of them off site.

It is starting to get close to being full of "important" data!

Any word on the long term reliabilty of 8 or 10 TB hard drives.

I don't like to split my files over several drives as it makes housekeeping a nightmare.

Long term reliability and you are encouraged by a new hard drive lasting 5 weeks?

I have been buying external hard drives since I bought the first one in 2004, a 40 GB one.

I would say over the past 17 years I have purchased and owned 4 dozen external hard drives.

I've only had 2 of them fail.

One was a 80 GB hard drive I bought in 2005 and it lasted 4 years before it failed but by the time it did, I only had a few files on there.

The entire 80 GB of useful file was already transferred over to bigger external hard drives.

The other one was a 250 GB hard drive I bought around 2006 and that one lasted several years too until one day in maybe 2012, I plugged it into the USB port and the PC didn't even recognize it as being in the USB drive.

Once I took it apart, it was just a regular hard drive on the inside and I plugged it into one of the available internal hard drive connection and it worked again and it has worked ever since.

I use it every day as one of my PC's 3 internal hard drives.

I now have 13 external hard drives, ranging from the smallest 2 TB, to the largest, 8 TB plugged into the USB port of my PC.

I use every one of them every day when I download files and put them into their assigned folder in each external hard drive and back them up into identical external hard drives, one for each of the 13 external hard drives.

Not one issue whatsoever.

our own personal viewpoint on using External Hard Drives for Backup

while 8 and 10 and even 16T TB Drives are now being sold and used,
IMHO one has to pause and consider about "putting all your eggs in one large basket"

one idea about backing up is to keep at least 2 independent sources to put them in, that way you insure if one goes down, at least you have the other

but putting them all in one, all in one very large drive - if that one fails, you're out of luck

IMHO it's better to have smaller multiple External HDs than one Huge One

If you're talking about storing 12+ TB of data, then you really should look at either a NAS enclosure, or buy a cheap tower with lots of hard drive bays, a motherboard with lots of SATA ports (with on-board RAID controller and gigabit LAN) and a low energy consumption CPU (nothing fancy). You can then build your own NAS with more hard drives and potentially less expense than buying a dedicated enclosure. It all depends on how cut up you'd be if you lost access to all your porn. . . I mean, important data.

I RAID 1 everything and have windows backup my personal documents both to the cloud and my personal fire-retardent, water resistant NAS. Probably overkill, but if I spent as long building a car as I've spent on my PC and the data in it, only to go and lose the car I'd be pissed, but not nearly as pissed as I'd be if I lost all the photos I've taken in the last 15 years, video footage of family and holidays and saved game files that I've invested days in, let alone all the documents I've written in the past 15 years, including my CV, software license keys, budget spreadsheets, work documents and so on.

I lost a 3TB drive last year. . . Laughed as I took it out of my PC and smiled when its replacement arrived, but I deal with people on a weekly basis that have lost large portions of their memories to mechanical hard drive failure. Hard drives die without warning and no make or model seems any better (in my experience) than the next.

I have several 8TB drives. I have well over 100tB and have a backup of all critical material on 2 drives on different PC's. I have 2 8bay external towers and 2 4 bay towers and a 4 bay network box.
You need backups that aren't on the same PC.
