I want a drive to back stuff up on, but put up somewhere to store (not connected to a machine). I was looking at the 3tb My Book which is about the same price as a 3tb WD green drive. Any pros and cons one over the other? Mainly about which would hold the data the longest if put back in a box, and put up on a shelf.
Or is there anything else I'm not thinking of? Thanks for any opinions.
