Silver is good

And I reckon S0ULphIRE is running some type of hot swappable Raid config Server, or something

I'm running 2 150Gb raptor drives, used to be one for my OS and one for games I'm currently playing. Then I thought 'meh' and Raided them together (striped ftw). Now I run the games and os off the same drive(s).

Then I've got 3 1TB drives and 1 2TB drive (just got that today). The 3 1TB drives are for storage, the 2TB drive backs up my most important stuff.

edit: The other three drives are smaller, 2 500GB drives and one 250GB drive. The 500GB drives are also backup drives, the 250 has xp installed just in case.
I've also got 2 Summit SSD's, one 120Gb and one 250Gb. Then I've got 1 2.5" 500GB external, 1 2.5" 320Gb external, and 1 2.5" 250Gb external. I like space

total storage space: 7.990TB

i think you should get a Western Digital External hard drive. Theyre cheap at Wal mart. I have never experienced any errors using these hard drives (Which i have used for 4 years). Alot of people here may have better recommendations but as a true member of tech forums this is the best answer i can give you.

Good luck on your file transfer.
