External hard drives

Depending on the application, we recommend that you pay attention to the following characteristics when purchasing an external hard disk:
If you are primarily looking for a portable hard disk or want to exchange data between different devices in an uncomplicated way, a 2.5'' hard disk with power supply via an integrated USB interface is a good choice. These smaller hard disks usually have a storage capacity of up to 5000GB.
When selecting the connection, the speed differences are shown. Most manufacturers today rely on the fast USB 3.0 standard. Newer hard disks already have the universal USB Type-C connection. Individual models also have the option of exchanging data via WiFi.
For home users who want to back up their documents and multimedia data such as holiday photos, we recommend external hard disks with a size of 3.5'' and a storage capacity between 500 and 5000GB. For Mac users, it is recommended to consider products with the fast Thunderbolt 3 connector.
Backup systems with a storage capacity of 5000GB or more and a RAID function are suitable for companies or for backing up large amounts of data. Rack systems can also be considered for larger storage capacities. These offer storage capacities of up to 64 TB and can be installed in a space-saving manner.

10.4 (Tiger)

Version 10.4, called Tiger, was released on April 29, 2005 and includes a system-wide metadata search called Spotlight. With Dashboard, a new component has been added to Exposé that displays small utilities called widgets. Tiger also includes limited support for 64-bit processes (on 64-bit processors) and the new Core Image and Core Video programming interfaces for outsourcing graphical computations to the GPU of the graphics card.
Since version 10.4.4, the system runs on Macs with Intel processors. Updates are offered separately as PowerPC or Intel versions. Tiger is with over two years the longest maintained version of Mac OS X. On November 14, 2007 the last version of Tiger, 10.4.11. was released.

10.5 (Leopard)

In Leopard, the user interface of the system and especially the Finder has been significantly revised; the concept of virtual desktops has been adopted with spaces from some Linux variants. It also includes Time Machine backup software and Boot Camp, which allows Microsoft Windows to be installed on Intel-based Macs in parallel with Mac OS X. Leopard enables 64-bit operation for applications with a graphical user interface. In addition, it is the first BSD derivative to meet the commercial certification Single Unix Specification '03 of the Open Group and may therefore bear the brand name "UNIX".

10.6 (Snow Leopard)

Snow Leopard was released on August 28, 2009 and, as announced by Apple at WWDC on June 9, 2008, this version of the operating system mainly contains improvements and few new features. The focus is on the improved utilization of current computer hardware - computers with PowerPC processors are no longer supported from this version, so an Intel processor is a condition. With Grand Central Dispatch and the Open Computing Language, a significant increase in performance is to be achieved by combining multi-core main processors with powerful graphics processors (GPGPU) under one central programming interface. There is also extended 64-bit support in the operating system kernel. The Finder has been completely rewritten and is now a 64-bit application. Most of Apple's pre-installed applications now also run in 64-bit mode, but can be started in 32-bit if required. QuickTime X supports modern multimedia codecs better, plus native support for Microsoft Exchange 2007 in Mail, Address Book and iCal. The application has been available for access to the Mac App Store for Snow Leopard since January 6, 2011.

Lion's new features include the Launchpad (an iOS-like list of all installed applications), improved full-screen program handling, Mission Control (a combined view of Spaces, Exposé, Dashboard and running full-screen applications) and FileVault2, which now includes full disk encryption.
Various components of earlier operating system versions, especially the Front Row Media Center interface, a pre-installed Java runtime environment, and the Rosetta emulation software that allowed programs to run on PowerPC processors are no longer supported.

Edition 01/2017- Wer sein Notebook mit einer großen wie leistungsstarken Festplatte aufwerten möchte, liegt mit der Seagate Maxtor M3 Portable eigentlich genau richtig. Das Modell ist mit seinem Gewicht von lediglich 243 g sehr leicht, dazu benötigt es kein externes Netzteil. So ist eine maximale Mobilität garantiert. Alle Werte im Test bewegen sich auf einem beachtlich guten Niveau. Dementsprechend verdient ist hier am Ende auch die sehr gute Gesamtwertung.more

Edition 11/2016 - Eine neue Festplatte von Maxtor? Tatsächlich bring Seagate nach einiger Zeit mal wieder ein neues Modell der Marke heraus. Leider kann es jedoch kaum einen Hype um den Markennamen entfachen, denn technisch gesehen ist das Gerät eher im unteren Mittelfeld angesiedelt. Vor allem die eher niedrige Geschwindigkeit limitiert die Optionen hier sehr stark. Zudem gibt es Probleme mit übermäßiger Wärmeentwicklung sowie einen hohen Stromverbrauch im Betrieb. Auf der anderen Seite ist die Ausstattung überdurchschnittlich. An Bord ist etwa eine automatische Funktion für Backups. Zudem ist die Kapazität massiv.

Servus

Naja bedingt. Externe Festplatten sind eigentlich nicht für den Dauerbetrieb gedacht. Ich kann dir also nicht sagen wie lange die Festplatte durchhält wenn sie 24h läuft.

M3 Portable (0.50TB)

Empfehlung: Nach dem Kauf Packung aufbewahren und die zuerst Platte einem Stresstest unterziehen.

Toll gestern erhalten, am Abend das Backup gestartet (alles lief wunderbar) und heute morgen ist Ding kaputt, d.h. die Festplatte gab immer noch eingesteckt eine Art streifendes Geräusch von sich.
Habe dann anstatt Garantie einzufordern das Gerät auseinandergenommen. Die Konstruktion ist immer noch klassisch, d.h. SATA Schnittstelle + separater, trennbarer Kontroller. Am Kontroller lag es anscheinend nicht, auch im SATA Dock trat das streifende Geräusch wieder auf.
Ich will damit niemanden vom Kauf abschrecken, einzig empfehlen nach dem Kauf die Packung aufzubewahren und die Platte zuerst einem Stesstest und einem kompletten Plattentest zu unterziehen.

Keine Kaufempfehlung

Keine gute Festplatte, da sie keinen Dauerbetrieb aushält. Für NAS-Backups deshalb ungeeignet. Ich habe diese gekauft, damit ich ein Synology NAS backupen kann. WD Elements Portable machen das bei mir seit Jahren ohne Probleme und die halten 24 Stunden Backup auch locker aus. Diese Maxtor dagegen macht bereits nach drei Stunden schlapp. Die erste ging sogar kaputt und machte keinen Wank mehr. Ich konnte sie nicht mehr auf Windows formatieren. Digitec hat sie mir dann prompt ausgetauscht. Auch die zweite machte schlapp nach drei Stunden. Nach 40 GB Kopiervolumen ging nichts mehr. Dieses Schleifgeräusch, das auch ein anderer bemerkte, trat bei mir bei beiden Festplatten auf. Sie klingen nicht, als wäre es solide. Vielleicht überhitzen sie einfach in ihrem Gehäuse. I don't know. Ich würde sie jedenfalls niemanden empfehlen, auch wenn der niedrige Preis reizt.

Nachtrag: Auch die zweite ist defekt! Das mitgelieferte Diagnosetool gab bei vollständiger Überprüfung nach einer Stunde eine Fehlermeldung und man solle sie retournieren. Ich habe absolut kein Vertrauen mehr in dieses Produkt.
