    I'm wanting to get an external hard drive for my backup files but am not sure which brand, type, size, etc. would be most compatible or the best quality. Can you give me any suggestions?

  • I would suggest any major brand USB external drive. The size question is a little more difficult to answer. I like to have double the sum of used disc space on all of the computers I intend to backup as the capacity of an external drive but there is really no formula to determine the "right" size. Maybe the best advice is to purchase the largest drive in your price range. You can't ever have too much storage.
