Choosing an external HDD Tags: Hard Drives Windows 7 Firewire External Hard Drive Storage Last response: October 22, 2009 5:28 PM in Storage Share guitarbloke October 22, 2009 9:32:36 AM Hi Guys, I need some advice picking an external HDD to back up my data (in preparation for the move to Windows7). Hopefully you can help out I would like something between 500-750Gb and one that has a good, fast transfer rate if possible. I am able to use eSATA and Firewire as well as USB2.0. My budget is approx £60-70, any thoughts on what I should go for? Many thanks!
