That is the physical size of the drive.  Obviously the two and a half are
smaller.

Mark,

Thanks.  That is the kind of thing I need to know.  One question which
someone may be able to answer.  Some drives are quoted as two and a half
inches and others are quoted as three and a half inches.  What does this
refer to?

I got a Western Digital Passport 120 GB drive for about £50 or so recently
and it has been faultless.

I went for this model for my laptop because it does not require an external
power supply as most of the larger capacity drives do.  Simply plug the USB2
in and off you go.

Subject: [access-uk] External hard drive

Hi Folks,

I am considering purchasing an external hard drive for my pc in order to
back up everything just in case of pc failure.  I am amazed to find that you
can now get up to a 500 GB drive for just over £70.  I have even found one
for under thirty pounds but I have never heard of the manufacturer, so will
not be taking a chance on that one.  I want one which is easy to use,
external rather than internal, and runs from a normal USB connection.  Is
there anything else I should particularly look for and are there any
manufacturers people have had good experiences with.  Freecom seem to get
good reviews.

any thoughts would be appreciated.

David
