Hard one big disc and two small ones

Recommended Posts

In a new, powerful computer, is it better to have one large hard disk - 4T or two of 2T?

This is a hard disk for storage, the computer has a separate hard disk of SDD for the operating system and software.

I had a disk of , Who died after about a month and a half. I would love recommendations for hard disks.

There is no difference in terms of performance. Usually the price of a large one will be lower than two small ones, and it takes up less space and consumes less electricity. I think in almost every case a large 1 is better, unless you want to do a RAID 1 for redundancy (but then your total volume is 2 tera and not 4 tara).

Ok. Thanks. In terms of physical space - I have enough places for future upgrades.

It seems to me I will go for the 4T in one drive.

By the way, does it make sense for an internal disk to break down after so little time?

Very unlikely but if it happened I have not much to do with it, right? The information on it was lost, I do not want the same hard disk (! That the store was selling on !!) so it is either to downgrade to 2t or upgrade to 4t and pay much more because what they offer is not good enough.

I'm a bit stuck with the hard drive thing. What is the chance that the same thing will happen again in the same type of disk? The disk you gave me after this month and a half 3h. 7200, 64 mb. 

What would you recommend?

Instead of a grandiose mobile celebration in Barcelona - we get a relatively small event in Shanghai this week, and plans for a European comeback this coming June The MWC (Mobile World Congress) was the first notable technological event to suffer last year's coronation, with naive restrictions in the first stage, Complete cancellation of the physical event afterwards - and at the same time promises that next year everything will return to normal, when it is likely that at that point in time no one guessed or predicted that even in 2021 ...
