External Hard drive good for long term backup?
Sep 7, 2012

I don't want to pay annual fees for online backup.

So what is the next best way to backup on a long term basis? I've heard hard drives start to lose data after not being turned on for a while? I would like to archive in an external drive and put it away for at least 6 months at a time. Please share your expertise.

thanks in advance
