    Looking for Personal Backup Storage Solution

    My Current Portable HDD is really old, and i think its only 5200rpm, so its limited, when im moving a 25gb folder it will take well over an hour to complete. The bottle neck if definitely the HDD obviously. It also sits for long periods of time in a safe, which i hear that HDDs can sometimes loose data over time and that doesn't happen with SSDs? not 100% might just be a rumour.

    Looking for Personal Backup Storage Solution

    Im all in the air for what i want, I currently have a usb 3 WD passport, and its just so slow. Only reason im looking to buy another is a hear that you should replace your HDD every 6 or so years. Though i haven't used it much i would be pretty salty if any info got lost so its just to be sure. Would getting a SSD be a better choice? I know htey only have a finite number of Read write cycles, but then that's ultimately the same regardless of if its a HDD or SSD, no?
  3. Reader, I am looking for a storage solution that will meet my needs for personal back up better than my current solution. My current solution is a WD passport 1TB, which is several years old and probably on its last legs, ergo the thought into upgrading. My backed up storage requirements are still within the 1-2tb range and i wont need much more for a while i don't think so a mild investment is acceptable. Due to my lack of knowledge into the personal back up world i have not really though of a budget so just realistic solutions would be nice, cheaper the better of course. Im looking for the storage to be: Relatively Fast (my current WD passport is so slow for copying and accessing, cant even watch a video) 1tb minimum but prefer 2tb unless I'm sacrificing space for cost effective speed. Secure! Some kind of encryption, or password protection, or something. Doesn't HAVE to be portable, but I'm not too good with servers and Cloud base storage, but I'm willing to learn if its advantageous enough. (would probably still need Cable access for speeeeds) Probably some other things but i cant think of them off the top of my head. My realistic use of this device or product is to back up my PC/Laptop's In one go (right now its really slow and i only back up personal or critical files, to which i clean regularly) then once i have performed said back up, i would store it away somewhere safe/ turn it off. So security and speed are my main focuses. I'm not to bothered about cloud access or network storage, but open to learn it and work on it if it is SUPER worth it, considering my use case. Thanks to all those who read and/or help! Have a lovely day.

    Dashlane vs Lastpass

    Sadly i wouldnt know the first thing about how to do that safely. So id be restricted to using the provided service or, if what i said before is plausible, would probably only share commonly used passwords on cloud and save secure ones locally only. Is that possible?

    Dashlane vs Lastpass

    Can you choose which passwords you have cloud based and which you have saved locally? along with can you save, said local passwords, as and encrypted file that you can upload to your personal cloud for safe keeping?

    Password managers

    Hey, i think the could would be more secure than my PC realistically. It might be mroe prone to attack, but the levle of resistance they have would be far beyond that i could achieve domestically.

    Password managers

    Yes i had looked into them, i must admit they do look very good, i was just unsure as to if i wanted to follow cloud or offline storage really. I don't want to do both if i can help it, apart from maybe 1 or 2 super secure passwords that i want to keep separate. But overall the ease of being able to log in across multiple devices is the sellpoint for me, mobile and PC.

    Dashlane vs Lastpass

    Dashlane has U2F with fingerprint recognition? Also that Yubikey, what is this, you peaked my interest.

    Dashlane vs Lastpass

    Solid advice. Yes i had heard of KeePass and i also have looked into it. the ease of use is a real key factor to me, fundamentally i am not worried about paying for a cloud based service, because even if it does get breached you are paying for it so i mean, itll at least be harder by my logic and also a Commercial Customer provider contract will be in place when you have a paid service, Almost like a guarantee they will do a "better" job. Also the open source aspect, though it means you can SEE how good the software is and check its security, it does mean that if an exploit is found and not reported or adjusted it could be easier to be malicious with sensitive data you know. As i said i have narrowed it down to the two i stated above, even with the previous "data exploit" lasspass experienced. I was more looking for User experiences or issues. Solid advice though. Many thanks.
  10. As the Subject suggests I am in the market for a password manager. I have narrowed my options down to Dashlane and Lastpass, and I am here to ask for peoples experiences using these providers, some pros and cons or maybe just general ease of use or power of the tool. All advice regarding these two is appropriated! Many thanks all.

    Password managers

    God damn it you made me giggle. And that sounds perfect, thank you! Android support i suppose too.
  13. TokiToki

    Password managers

    Yeah i found it, but i wonder if any of them use fingerprint as a 2 way Authy, like you put password then scan fingerprint, i mean that would be ideal no?

    Password managers

    But then you loose all them passwords, so its it just.... One password to rule them all?
  15. so i hear that password managers are actually really good and i should look into one. Im not really sure what ones are considered good, secure, ect. As far as i am aware though anything beats saving them to google or writing them down to be snapped up or lost. What companies provide a good password managing software and can be used cross platform between IOS, WIN and Android? Also how do you access the programme, is it a singular password, fingerprint, what? Just looking for input, Johnny 5 me please! ^ if you get that reference (without google), I appreciate you.
