So how were your summer holidays? Holidays can mean many different things to all of us: relaxation/energetic endeavours, sun/rain, great food/bad food, hotel/tent – whatever your way of spending your summer holiday one thing for sure is that there will be a snap shot or two involved.

We all love taking a picture and nowadays with the advent of digital photography we can edit on the go and store forever for prosperity. However sometimes this can cause its own headaches. Our phones, tablets and PC’s are groaning under the weight. Thankfully help is on hand for both holiday makers and businesses alike.

Our good friends at Western Digital are now offering up Gold hard drives with up to 10TB of storage. Okay this maybe a little too much for the average user but we offer up a number of Western Digital hard drives.

Let’s take a look at a few.

Hard drives that are not properly balanced may cause excessive vibration and noise in a multi-drive system, reduce the hard drivelife span, and degrade the performance over time.
