External Hard drive and advice needed!!


Standard Member
We have had a new addition to the family and as any proud parent I have captured every breath by photo and video. This is now stored on my Windows Vista Operated Packard Bell Computer 4GB Ram which I bought in 2007.
I fear as the computer is 5years old and having funny turns now and again I want to copy all my footage to somewhere safe and secure, I figured the best place to do this is to an external hard drive. I am an absolute novice when it comes to computers and seek help.

Please can someone advise which external hard drives are reliable and worthy of buying. I have seen Buffalo DriveStation 1.0TB USB 2.0 and WESTERN DIGITAL My Passport Portable External Hard Drive - 1 TB so far.

I do not propose to move the hard drive around and will want the back up to the hard drive as I put it on the computer.

Any advice would be welcome.
