Suppose my PC HD needs are around 1TB. What makes
more sense, in terms of longevity, speed and reliability:
- To have the data divided amongst 6 drives of varying
capacities (80-500 GB) ... OR
- To have the data stored in 2 large capacity (300/500GB)
That, in the backdrop of a Motherboard and Power Supply
(300W) that right now seem to be struggling with 5 HDs.
I am going to shortly get a PSU around 500-600W, but
the idea of managing multiple versus couple of HDs remains.
What it boils down to, is whether the large size HDs are
just as susceptible to failure as the smaller HDs, and if so
should you be putting all your 'eggs' in 1 or 2 baskets,
considering the current PEPCO situation that is doing HDs
no favors ?.
Would be obliged to hear some considered thoughts on
