HDD or SDD portable hard drive

I need to store my baby pics for long term. Since baby is 1 year old, I’m sure it’s going to be lot of pics in future. Which one you suggest and what capacity. Is Seagate 3 TB for $99.99 a good deal?

  1. If you want to store those pics for long term, don’t rely on a single HDD or SSD. Any drive can fail any time without warning. Consider following the 3-2-1 backup rule and keep multiple backup copies. For example, one backup on an external HDD/SSD and one more on another drive/Blu-ray. Alternatively, cloud instead of an additional drive. For example Backblaze B2 plus some free tool to backup to it like Duplicacy or other free tool: [https://www.vmwareblog.org/single-cloud-enough-secure-backups-5-cool-cross-cloud-solutions-consider/](https://www.vmwareblog.org/single-cloud-enough-secure-backups-5-cool-cross-cloud-solutions-consider/). As a side note, portable SSD can be better if you are traveling a lot and need to care it with you (no moving parts to be damaged like in HDD).

  2. I was able to grab a Western Digital 5TB portable external last year for around ~$120 at BestBuy.

  3. only the HDD is a hard drive, so only the HDD can be a “portable hard drive”

  4. I recommend that you make two copies on Blu-Ray [M-Disc](https://www.mdisc.com/) and have them stored at separate locations (one copy at home, one copy at work; the safety deposit box; parents’ house; etc). This is what I do for archival storage.

  5. What does Google in your country say about the disk price? There can be your answer. Or diskprices.com can give a guide. Compare exact model number though.

  6. Much more important than the selection of your primary drive is a decent backup strategy. The question is not if a drive will fail but when. And it might not even be a drive failure that will eventually wipe those memories but a fire, theft, or you just might misplace the drive. Cloud storage like u/ImTheCaptainNowboys does suggest is pretty good as a decent provider will take care of a lot of threats but I would not recommend you to rely on this as your only means of storage.

  7. Don’t use an SSD. They don’t store well long term. Without power, they hold their data for a couple of years at most. When plugged in, they are electronically refreshed. Hard drives don’t have this limitation.

    Your best bet is to make multiple copies, as these photos are irreplaceable. One in cloud storage, another on your main PC, another on an external HDD.

    Unless you’re planning to take professional quality photos every day of your child’s life for 18 years, 1 to 3 terabytes is plenty. I have my mum’s entire photo library from the time she went digital, plus my own, in only a couple hundred GB. Good quality digital photos average 5MB each with JPG compression.
