Thinking about an external hard drive--advice?

15 years ago

I need to start backing up my photos (about 1600 so far, and I haven't even started my project of scanning family photos) and music and a handful of documents.

What are some factors I should consider in looking at external units? I know it's wise to go for as much storage space as I can afford, but there's such a thing as overkill, right? It's just hard to know what you MIGHT need down the line...

I've been reading some reviews on Amazon and am kind of amazed that some units are really cumbersome to use--like requiring many steps to back something up--or else really, really, really slow. But there must be some that truly fit the definition of "user-friendly," right? (Uh... right?)
