If you are looking for an external hard drive, a good way to get the best quality components that you want is to choose one of our external enclorures, and then install the hard drive of your choice. This will give you one year warranty on the enclosure plus the full hard drive warranty -- 3 years -- rather than the typical one to two year warranty you get on a packaged external drive.

An external drive or a Network Attached Storage (NAS) drive are the fastest and most convenient ways to back up your data. Owners of Apple's OSX Leopard have TimeMachine software for making backups, which will use a large drive to maintain daily and hourly backups.

If you are installing a new drive into your notebook computer, consider getting a 2.5" external case for your old drive. Not only does this allow you to use the old drive for backup or transport, but it make the job of transferring data between the old and new drives much easier. Here's some shareware drive backup and cloning software for Mac and software for Windows to help out. Commercial drive cloning programs for Windows include Acronis Disk Manager and Norton Ghost.
