I know, that external 2,5" USB HDD - worst storage for 24/7 running node, but at the moment on one node i only have this option to go.
I would like to buy something like WD RED 2,5" 4TB and put it in to proper enclosure, but they have only 1TB as 2,5". But for the WD Passport 2.5" they have 5TB drive! As well many other manufactureres do have 2.5" 4-5TB drives. Of course they are not dedicated for 24/7, but at least with 3 years warranty.
Any recommenations for such a external drive? Maybe somebody have good or bad experience with specific disks ?
