You see posts daily about USB drive data loss. While it doesn't happen at the office or home we do a few things differently.
1. We don't use FAT32 volumes on USB drives. (period)
2. Almost every unit is some case we bought and slipped a drive inside. Just two paper sheets harder than changing a lightbulb.
So it really comes down to this. Will you setup the drive with the more reliable NTFS (file system)?
Seagate makes drives. So I give them the slight nod.
Does anyone have any feedback as to the quality of AcomData External HD? Also, is this a well established company? Any info as to how this brand compares to a Seagate External HD?
