Googling around, I've seen very conflicting stories from different sources. Some sources say that modern SSDs are much more reliable than hard disks, and I've heard other sources say the opposite. If you've got a decent understanding of this topic, I'd like to hear what you have to say. I'm looking for the absolutely most reliable storage that I can buy for a reasonable price. I'm looking to buy 2 backup drives. Drive #1 I'll be using to backup my computer every week (through TimeMachine). Drive #2 I'll write to at most once a year, and I need this drive to be readable if I go to access it after many many years of it sitting in a cool dark dry place. Reliability is paramount for this project. Do you have an good info on this topic?
