2TB backup disk with USB connection at too cheap a price, what do I not know?


Recommended Posts

I am looking for a 2TB backup disk with a 2.5 "USB connection (which does not need external power), I have seen some suspiciously cheap products (for example 1TB / 2TB Portable External Hard Drive Disk HD High capacity SATA USB 3.0 Storage Device Original for Computer Laptop | External Hard Drives | - AliExpress) At a price of about 100 NIS ...


- Is it real at all?

- From what I have seen all the cheap disks require that the formatting be done in FET32 only and not in NTFS so as not to damage the disk, what is the reason?

I will give a little more information about the scams that can usually be encountered. You get a drive that can also have 500Tra written on it, that way it is formatted at least. Once you bypass the real few gigabytes that are on the drive, then there is usually some failure or things are deleted. What happens in this scam is that the drive is only formatted to present itself in a certain way. As for the fat32 so for sure it is a sign that the actual size of the drive is probably no more than 32 gigabytes or you do not want it to be reformatted and suddenly it will show the real size (although sometimes their format remains even after using Windows format). @ha
