Thoughts, as they do, have been whirling around inside my head lately. The one that a few minutes ago bubbled it's way up to the top is the question of Mini-HardDrives.
As I'm sure some of you have noticed from my recent posts, I'm planning on doing some traveling in the next few months. Further, I fully intend to work while I'm at it. Part of my plan is to do extensive recording absolutely everywhere I go. This means that I'm going to need some external storage, since the HD in my laptop is only 250 gigs. I'm not going to have space for a big bulky enclosure, and every pound is going to count, so it'll have to be a 2.5" drive (maybe two).
I've seen those rugged little orange rubber encased Lacie drives being used by a lot of people. But I'm wondering what else is out there. As far as data storage goes I don't care about the price. Mics, cables, interfaces, shoes, and deoderant, I am more than happy to scrimp on, but if a drive goes down, so does my entire catalogue of sounds and projects, essentially my entire working life. Not going to happen.
For those of you who do a lot of travelling, backpacking, &tc., what makes/brands of mini harddrives are up to the task?
