    If you&#39;re really worried about your drive&#39;s quality, I&#39;d go with a RAID Array; level 0 or 1.
    A good level 0 RAID disk drive will spread about blocks of your files amongst itself and its friends in the array (other drives), evening out wear and tear from over-usage and also helping to improve performance through data striping.
    A good level 1 RAID disk drive will also provide disk mirroring capabilities.
    I&#39;m sure you could find more about RAID technologies by looking through Webopedia.com, if you&#39;re interested.
    To give you an idea of pricing:
    Top of the line RAID servers (blackmount/point) go for about 15 grand each.
    But top of the servers usually include 4 gigs of RAM (ECC), 2/2.4 terabytes of storage space, and P4 processor (3 gig).
    You&#39;ll probably be able to setup a nice 200 gig RAID array for maybe 300 to 500 bucks.

    Where are you from and how much are you willing to pay?
    External HDD are coming pretty cheaper nowadays. I am talking WD Or Maxtor 7200 RPM and 8 MB cache.
