What is best back-up drive?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I had a backup drive that died and Win 10 keeps popping up a window asking to re attach my backup drive.

I can't turn it off.

 

Seagate Backup Plus Desk Hub 4TB External Hard Drive Black STEL4000300 $165 Australian.

 

Seems cheap when a 2 TB drive is 99 dollars.

I shut-off Windows backup notifacation and use Backblaze cloud Backup. https://www.backblaze.com/cloud-backup.html#af4759

 

Hard Drives die, so always backup your important files in the cloud,.. Windows offers free cloud storage with OneDrive, but I preferer Backblaze.

 

How to stop Windows Backup Notification,..  Control Panel -  System and Security - Security and Maintenance - Change.. -Uncheck Windows Backup.

For backup I use a WD 1TB External Hard Drive.

 

I manage myself what I want to backup and then for some folders with a lot of files such as Music I use "SyncToy" from Microsoft to keep data synced between HDD and External HDD Drive (Backup). And you can execute the sync process as often  as you want.

 

Yes my option is not automatic. probably you want a RAID so it's everything doubled instantly.
