Need to replace 8 y/o external hard drive?

I’m an amateur photographer and have been storing my ton of photos on a 5TB external hard drive (about 8 years old now). It’s (obviously) very reckless to keep them in one place so I’m looking at a second external hard drive to back them up.

​

I don’t know nearly enough about data storage so was hoping for some help.

​

1. I’ve been told hard drive failure is inevitable. Since it’s 8 years old, do I need to replace the original at this point? I’m thinking since there are sales now, might as well snag 2 if it’s time to replace the first one.

​

2. Are big hard drives more likely to fail and therefore risky? I see there’s a 14GB one on sale. I was warned 5GB was too big and much more likely to fail when I bought it back then. I was wondering much truth there is to that.

​

(P.S. I know cloud backup is another option, but I’m still not comfortable storing my personal files online where there they can potentially be stolen some day.)

  1. Get three of those 14 TB drives. Use one for production data. One for backups and one for backups that you keep offsite somewhere.

  2. A local HDD in your house is also susceptible to theft (and stored in a sellable HDD) and fire and flood and disk failure.

    If your worried about theft from a cloud disk, encrypt your data.

    Personally would suggest a RAID1 (mirrored disks) and a cloud backup.

  3. Definitely Pick up the 14TB WD EasyStore from Best Buy for $199, two if you can. There’s no more risk for a bigger drive than a smaller one.

    Use one as your daily storage, other as a regular backup, and your old 5TB for cold backup (basically plug in once every few months, update with newer files, then unplug and store somewhere offsite).

    At 8 years you’re fortunate that drive has not failed yet.
