Im sure that if it was important data it would be backed up elsewhere. These massive storage capacity hard disk drives are JUST that. I too would opt for a Western Digital hard disk drive over a Seagate. Im actually updating my NAS drives to the 2TB WD's when they are made available in my area. BTW, the movies and music i watch and listen too on the ' slower ' hard drives dont play faster or better on ' faster ' hard disk drives. As for the program setup files i keep on these massive storage drives, well, who REALLY benches install times of programs, and if they do . . . Who REALLY cares if the game or application took an extra 3 seconds to install.
