If you're talking about those stupid Backblaze articles...don't pay attention to those, because they're **** and not trustworthy at all.
then should I still go internal or get a pci card and have an external base that I can remove the drives on the fly and add them if needed
I need about 4tb drive so it last a while without getting full
usb3 or sata plug better for external backup drives
Just get a NAS and run it through gigabit ports.
Also, if you want true backups...you have a local backup that you run once in a while, and then you also mirror that backup to somewhere off-site (e.g. some kidn of cloud storage service).
