flash drive vs spinning harddisk. which is better? which store data longer?
am thinking getting a backup drive that won't lose data after 2 years non-use.
After some research on flash drive vs hard disk, for small backup expecting to last at least 3 years, it's kinda mixed bag. No absolute say which is better. Rather, you want to shop for expensive high quality ones, either tech.
right now, i found this to be the best
i decided, am going to get this. just 500gb is enough for me. and $80. gonna use for mac. you buy too!
