Not all the brands are equally reliable.
My worst experience has been with Seagate. 2 out of 3 TB drives failed before 2 years and the other one after the third. As two of the HD were in warranty, I had a replacement, but one is already gone and the other one begins to show problems.

In any case nothing is better than the experience of a storage company publishing the data of reliability of their hard drive. Looks like HGST is the most reliable.

Yes as regards backups you/we really need at least 3 sets.
One in your machine
A second one in your house (can be in your machine as EW drive etc) (in case of main hard drive failure)
A third one off site at a friends house etc (in case of fire or theft)

But yes as the size of our important data (ha ha) gets bigger and bigger I think I will need to investigate NAS and RAID drives.

I am now getting ready mentally and financially to buy my first 8TB drive.

I think I will get a Seatgate 8TB enterprise drive.

You need to be careful as some of the data storage drives are slow eg 5,200 rpm.

For a "storage drive", speed isn't an issue. Higher rotational speeds decrease seek times, which helps in the case of say the primary "C" drive. Storage, for most people, means backup files, media files (such as movies), etc. Seek times for storage drive aren't a big issue.

^^^ what he said

As you get up in to the many Terabytes, a RAID system becomes a good idea. As a bonus, some of the RAID configurations will give you much faster disk access.

Oh well
I took the plunge the other day and bought a Seagate 10TB Barracuda hard drive.
I am now copying all of my files on to it from my 6 TB drive.

I jumped the 8TB as the 10TB was only one hundred dollars more and I seem to need a bigger drive every one or two years. So this jump from 6 to 10 should last me 2 or 3 years.

I like the simplicity of having all of my files on just one drive.

But just after I ordered it I see that Seagate are planning to release a 16TB drive. But I wont be needing one of those for a few years, by that time I may be in a rest home! (ha ha)

I brought 2x 8TB Seagate hdds for 170 in March. Very light usage, used only for storage. No problems here, so far, so good.

BTW, did anyone in the UK see this in the early hours of this morning?

Very nice, and nice price too.

I like the fact that it also provides 2xUSB 3.00 charging points.

I wouldn't put your entire 6TB on one 10 TB unless you are planning to keeping the 6 TB and have the exact same files still on it that you copied to the 10 TB.

I would split it up, 3 TB from your 6 TB on one 10 TB and the other 3 TB on another 10 TB and then make sure each one of those 3 TB has an equal exact backup on another 10 TB:

hence you will need a total of 4 10 TB drives.

Everything I have has an exact same backup on another exact same model same size external hard drive and I don't put all my eggs in one basket.

So if one fails, I don't lose anything because I have backup.

In 17 years of accumulating files, videos, audio, etc etc, I have never lost any data to a hard drive failure, internal nor external.

Also don't fill up your external or internal hard drives, always leave about 20% free (not including the free space that it's already on it when you first got it. Example a 4TB hard drive when you take it out of the box only has about 3.89 TB of free space, etc - when you count the 20%, don't include that .11 TB as part of the 20%)

@ Namcot
Thanks for that.
I agree
Up until now I have always had one main disk and one back up disk on site and one backup disk off site - all the exactly the same size. (1, 2, 3 4 and 6 TB over the years)

But with the price of the 8 and 10 TB's getting up in price and with my limited income, I may not be able to afford to do this.
