Re: Hard Drive Failures Cause Home Theater Hatred
I have found it is better to run two reliable hard drives, and also partition the 1st hard drive into 2 partitions, 5-10 GB for program, and the rest of the drive for data. Then I backup the entire C drive to the 2nd hard drive. I also use Norton Ghost for DVD backups of my C and D drives.
I only purchase either western digital or Seagate cheetah hard drives. Maxtor and other drives typically produce more platter noise, and tend to crash.
