Hello, I'm feeling a bit frustrated and was hoping some kind people could help me with an issue I am having. Recently I've had 2 different large capacity hard-drives fail on me. A 1TB Western Digital and 2TB iOmega. In order to save hard-drive space on my 2011 MBP, I've used these hard-drives to house all of my media files (videos, photography, and mp3s) as well as utilize it for Time Machine back-ups. I also used it to store files that I was seeding for torrent purposes. It worked nicely but it makes me nervous because if the hard-drive would begin to fail without me noticing, I would lose everything, which would be devastating. As it goes, when I noticed the iOmega starting to slow down and make a clicking noise, I transferred everything to my MBP hard-drive. I've looked into a Time Capsule and it seems like a really cool product, but I already have a decent Buffalo wireless router. I like the idea of having a hard-drive/router in one device and connecting a hard-drive to my current router does not appeal to me. I guess what I am asking is: are there any hard-drives that will give me more than a year? Am I utilizing the external drive correctly or could this be why I've killed two drives? Do you have any suggestions to meet the needs I have? Appreciate your help.
