Ok my comp's raid just crashed again... Odd bug but its fixed so no biggie.

Biggie is I lots lots of info on it. Itunes beeing the main thing.

So can anyone suggest a good Usb Backup Hard drive with usefull software? Got Vista 64 atm and would like to make sure I dont have this problem again :)

Main drive is 300G.

Any personal Experience would be great :)

    Hm everyone I know with external hard drives has a WD Passport one and they seem great. I never use the software that comes on them though, always download my own tools so I don't know about that part.


    Personally I broke up my RAID cuz it was more trouble than it's worth and my load times were actually slower on it because onboard RAID controllers are software implementations :(

    I got (2) 1 TB Western Digital External HDs. 

    Never had a problem. There great and reliable. I take my one everywhere with me, even dropped it twice and had it kicked over once and its still hugging along error free.
