Need to buy a computer external backup for family photos, videos, files.
Am thinking a 1 or 2 Terabytes... more interested in important documents, photos, video, etc.. wife also take slots of photos and videos with phone..

any suggestions on the drive setup?
Already I am almost all sure it is USB, so wife has easy setup features,,,,, it has to be easy because only my daughter and I are the technical types, and my daughter only visits 2x year.

Thanx !!

I recommend an external case that allows you to put whatever size hard drive you wish. I have an external case with a 3TB SATA hard drive. Plugs into the USB port and works great. I can transfer it to any of the computers in the house or with the girls' laptops as needed.
I also use in-case swappable drive bays for the SATA drives.
