and as for big drives, i dont see a problem with using a big drive as long as you are responsible about backup i mean you shouldnt be relying soley on any drive to hold all your data so i dont see a problem if you backup often as is the advice with any drive anyway whatever happens

How would you backup a 1 TB hard drive? Seriously, buy another one?

You'd be smart to start a level of redundancy such as RAID instead of purchasing one large drive.

i never had a HDD fail on me yet, and i hope not anytime soon either.
I think i rather have the same size of internal and external HDD and have them as Semi-RAID1.

yes have 2 1tb drives in a mirrored array . i was recommending for this sort of budget that the op mentioned not a universal fix for every situation and for this sort of budget that looks like a completely feasible option if the op needs 1tb of storage its not always a feasible option .

If the ob say has 800gb of data he will need 800gb of space to put it all in so whats going to be better having 4 500gb drives to store it all(including a mirrored array) on or 2 1tb drives i would go for the 2 1tb drives there is no evidence to suggest that 1tb drives have a higher failure rate than any other sise of drive and so you have just as much risk of loosing your data whatever the size of the disk and so i would say as long as your budget permits using 2 1tb drives is not a problem
