As you shoot more photos, or buy more media from iTunes you are going to fill up both the hard disks on your computer, and if you’re a Mac user, your Time Machine. My 1.5TB Time Machine was so full it couldn’t update easily so I decided to get something bigger. The hard disk I was previously using as the Time Machine will then be used for off-site backups.
Fortunately as the need for storage grows, the price per terabyte has gone down. In Japan, you can now get a 3TB hard disk for less than ¥16,000 which is about the same amount I paid for the 1.5TB model a year or two ago.
Not a particularly exciting piece of gear, but if you don’t back up your data…
