My old Velociraptor shat the bed the other day. I'm running off an old 150GB WD drive.

Is the 640GB 1AALS WD Black still a good general use drive, or is there something else out there that's worth a modest increase in price.

Also, if I'm going to be using only one drive, what's a good backup program, and how often do you recommend I image my drive?

Yeah, your best bet would be to get a WD Caviar Black 640GB.

 

Windows has a utility built into the OS that lets you preform a full system image.
