    What type of external hard drive do you use?

    Little bit worried about external hard drives breaking over a long period of time

    External hard-drive should be a backup, not your only copy. If the data is anyway important, the minimum should be a 3-2-1 strategy: 3 copies, 2 local, 1 offsite. For a home user, that usually means one copy on pc/laptop, one copy on an external hard-drive, and one copy on Google Photos/OneDrive/Dropbox etc. Anything less than that is just begging for data loss
