How Much Hard Drive Storage Do You Need?

For some time now I have been advocating the use of portable hard drives for back-up, with a rotation scheme like in the old days of tape back-up devices. Prices just keep on dropping. There is no greater evidence than the recent offering listed at DealUniversity for a 1TB USB 2.0 External Hard Drive, available at Buy.Com at an unbelievable $249.95, including free shipping. It looks like the deal is still good, based on this web page.

The unit Weighs just 5.1 pounds and measures 5″ x 3″ x 7.75″ . It works with Windows 98SE, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Millennium Edition as well as Mac OS 8.1 or above and Mac OS 9.0 or up. It is Vista compatible.

I don’t know how your math works, but I had trouble wrapping my mind around the concept of a terabyte, so stopped by Wikipedia to confirm that it is the equivalent to 1,000 Gigabytes of data. Yes, folks, that’s the motherload of data storage for any law firm I know. Even if it’s just used for image or file storage of old client files, it’s an amazing deal.
