i was just given a 4 tb drive from my friend who is upgrading, what should i do with it, i have never needed this much storage
back up your main storage to it
Well it is only 4TB, Someone like me could fill that drive up fast with tons of video. That would not be enough to hold my video library.
If I had the money I would love to get 3x 10TB HDDs for myself
Use it as a backup for your main PC.
Buy a 3.5" enclosure and turn it into a 4TB portable hard drive.
Maybe you have an Xbox or something that needs more storage. Maybe a friend or family member's PC needs more storage.
Maybe you have interest in building a NAS storage system for movies, music, network files, etc.
Or just properly dispose of it.
I have a 480gb m.2 boot and a 3tb hdd in my new this year PC, I am thinking of getting a 1tb m.2 and using the 3tb just for backup mostly. I want to put games on it but with the speedy m.2 the slowness is quite noticeable. At home its not a deal breaker but for $100 a 1gb m.2 could have a long life in this PC and the next. Also considering putting it on my router.
