Up until now I have had an old hard drive that I put into a caddy for storing music and photo files, but I have now upgraded to the Western Digital Elements 640GB external hard drive.
I’ve now had it a week and it’s working pretty well. It comes formatted as FAT32 but I reformatted as ext3 which seems to work well with Ubuntu.
It will take me a while to fill this monster drive!
I got it from Amazon for £60 including free delivery which is not bad for 640GB.
