Question on Removable Hard Drive
I have a lot of music and video files that won't fit on my laptop's hard drive. If I want to access these files daily via an external storage device, is an external hard drive what I should get? I would need a 300 GB hard drive. Would it damage my laptop if I have it connected to an external hard drive all the time? Would a Maxtor OneTouch III be something that I would need? It seems that people use that for backup, but is it possible for me to access the files on the hard drive all the time?
What is the difference between 2.5" and 3.5" hard drives? Is it better to get a 3.5" hard drive in terms of reliability and speed (I don't need portability)?
Besides the Maxtor OneTouch III, what are some other similar products that would suit my needs?
Thanks for any help in advance,
