I’ve been keeping all of my data in two of 3TB WD My Passport for many years and have been waiting for a 6TB portable HDD. But it seems no hope. The HDD manufacturers stay with 5TB for many years.
Thus, I’m going to purchase WD My Passport 5TB soon. The thing is that I’m afraid if it is riskier than CMR drive. I read some articles about SMR drive and they say you have more chance to lose your data.
So, I’d like to hear about your experience with SMR drives. Has anybody experienced it?
I’ll use them just for backup.
