OK guys, I’m looking for a Mac friendly (although I can reformat) compact 2.5” portable USB 3.0 HD back up for ripped CDs. May also partition the drive for some critical work files if I buy a larger unit. Unit to replace an ancient 1TB 2.5” drive (almost full) that’s just started throwing up issues on DriveDX.
I’m looking at size range from 2TB minimum to up to 4TB. The usual suspects that first spring to mind are Western Digital (My Passport), LaCie Rugged Mini, Seagate BackUp+ and G-Drive Mobile.
Also, happy to buy a 2.5” enclosure and fit my own drive. I’ve done this for my work files with 2 x 1TB Samsung EVO840s where lightning quick speeds were needed, but that performance not crucial for this type of back up.
Before I plunge, any other suggestions or experience of said examples most welcome.
