Can I trust an old drive but no use?

Quote of Jabberwock

I didn't understand the logic, why not use it?

True, the disc that was used was more "proven" but why not use both?

 

That's not the question, and what are the best questions ...?

 

Peter - run it on a quarterly basis - semi-annually or at your convenience.

It doesn't mean anything and everything about its credibility or when it will go any drive,

As you mentioned, but you should "bones out" from time to time ...

Point drives should not be trusted. No problem using them, but any file you have on any drive - if it's a file you'll be sad if suddenly deleted - will make sure you have another copy of it on a separate drive. No question here at all.

 

In an enclosed article, it obviously doesn't represent anything, but just as an anecdote, I've had 3 external Transcend drives in the past (ranging from 4TB to 6TB).

I understand that the solution is in the cloud

Not necessarily ...

It's all a matter of the volume of information you want to back up.

Simply create at least two copies of vital information and keep them in different locations.

Of course check once in a while .... that everything is fine.

Ahhh, and hope for the best!

Putting important butchers in someone else's responsibility? : smiley6:

No problem using the cloud as another backup location (for me, third!) But there is no substitute for a physical backup that you have in two separate copies.

It's not that complicated, nor expensive, an external drive today in very large volumes costs a penny, and you will appreciate every shekel you paid for it when suddenly, without warning, the drive on your computer and with it is filled with important materials.

Reinforced, Must Not Trust Drives - Back up everything important to another drive or even 2 if the information is really worth it or at least mechanical HDD (Higher Survival Percentage than SSD)
And all without mentioning this disgusting thing called transcend the whole web blowing up posts about them dying or having problems in a matter of months, of course the same goes for the rest of the company but to them it's much more common from what I saw in the back door of computer stores.

Good.

It is completely unnecessary to enter the trap of a less reliable and more reliable manufacturer,

Let's stay the one I find They have not yet reached their level

Keep information in them and go to sleep.

Therefore, all of the above, ie several copies, etc., and if you want anyway

Peace of mind, then drives from different manufacturers, which is basically, 2 ....😊

Transedent produces a lot of things, but it doesn't .

If you buy an external transducer disc, it's usually there

Sighgate's tough, but not only. I mean, you can find that too

WD and also Because, as a matter of fact, Transcendent only makes you

The chassis and adapter inside.

 

I would not say that the number of faults is statistically an exception to the products of the other manufacturers.

What's the problem? USB and Slamat connectors .....

: Facepalm:

 

Previously, I reported an external 8TB drive that reached 57 degrees while resting, started debugging SMART data. (new product)

I immediately took it out of the lid and put it in the computer case. The problem has worked out ever since.
