    So my 1tb hard drive is getting a little filled, and I'm saving for a bigger drive. I'm looking for a good drive that doesn't die after 6 months of use. The storage space im looking for is 4-6tb. OS is windows 7

    literally anything, but i would recommend Toshiba, the T300 has capacity from 1TB-3TB and X300 3TB-6TB i think, they are nice drives and will last a long while i reckon. and they are cheap and fast

    I'll let you decide if their data recovery and warranty is worth $75. I am inclined to think outside services would cost less...

    If you want massive gains in speed from your storage, get a pair or more of the same SSD and RAID them

    He's looking for 4-6 terabytes. A 4tb SSD is around $1500. And you are suggesting several? I don't think that's realistic. Maybe it works for you with small SSDs, but this guy is looking for capacity.
