  • External Hard Drive – 1TB – What is working for you?

    What has worked (and not crashed) for you when looking at a 1TB External Hard Drive. Most of the feedback I find is from a very short user timeframe. I need to know who has used something for more than 6 months or a year.

    Using shadow copy can I set up a shadow copy of an entire drive and not just a shared folder? Can I also do this on workstations like Windows 7? Or am I limited to only server os’es. If so are there hacks or workarounds?
