Need advice on buying portable hard drive[4T] for backup. The reviews on Amazon are all over the place. Either they love the WD or Seagate or have had horrible luck with them. Can't find much else about what brand to buy. I have tried Carbonite but being out in the sticks that never has worked out.

First, this is the wrong forum for this kind of question.

Second, to TL;DR a small book's worth of knowledge and experience, you get at least two external enclosures from different vendors (e.g. a Seagate and a WD), and you make your backups in sets to each of them.

You never rely on a single disk, unless you don't care about your data.

Yes, after I posted I realized my mistake. Sorry.
