^ what is the drive called as i can't seem to find it on newegg...
if the drive does fail, is there anyway to get the data on it back or is it completely gone?
im thinking i should get x2 500gb externals as to just one big 1.5tb drive.
i dont like the external drives with on/off switch cause i think each time you do it it puts a strain on the drive. i like wd as they turn on/off with the computer and when not in use just goes in sleep mode.
