Guide to buying an external hard drive

  • Buy internal hard drive
  • Buy $20 external case

Why follow the instructions above?

If you want an external drive for storing or backing up your data, it is actually wise to instead purchase a internal hard drive an and external case for said drive. The reason being is because most external drives come pre-installed with unneeded bloatware, such as cloud sync software, back-up programs and manuals. Plus external drives sometimes dont even function like normal drives. My old external drive doesnt even let me defragment it, which is pretty bananas.

So by purchasing a plain old internal hard drive instead, you avoid the hassle of dealing with things that you normally shouldn't have to deal with when buying new drives.
