    So I replaced my Intel 660p m.2 2TB with this drive, the HP EX950 M.2 2280 2TB which comes with 1400TBW (only disadvantage here is that there isn't any software package for it but that doesn't bother me, the Intel 660p went into my laptop):

    Thought about what @Trusteft said about replacing your hard drive before they die, and I just ordered this, a Mushkin Enhanced Source 2.5" 2TB SATA III drive, it'll be for storing the stuff that I used to store on the magnetic drive with bad sectors. Then I'll probably use that drive for files I don't mind losing:

    Why do you save stuff you don't mind losing?

    Just so that I can use it. Once it gets lost I can always replace it. And the drive. For example I could use it to store downloads of setup files.

    I'm thinking a massive 4TB SSD for backups as well sometime in the future too.

    In this day and age: Cloud storage. For instance: Microsoft OneDrive (which has Windows integrated syncing).

    "5GB free. 50GB for $3 a month. 1TB for $8 a month. 5TB for $11 a month."

    I use this for critical files. Currently running the 50GB, but if I hit 1TB I'm going to skip, and go straight to the 5TB. Then dump a ton of crap on there. Or, I was thinking of doing an Office365 subscription. $79 a year which includes 1TB of OneDrive storage.

    Edit: even the Office365 Home would be better for me. 6 PCs (just noticed they up'd it), 1TB OneDrive for each user.. might be better.

    Some people are hoarders lol. I'm not even bad at all, I know people who buy basically the max capacity HDDs (both magnetic and SSD) and fill them to the brim within a very short time. And personally I'd like to keep my files on my PC. The only thing I keep in the cloud is my music in the Apple cloud.

    I like cloud storage for transferring files between people. Storing personal files...no way in hell.

    Having said that, I was an avid user of one of the first (web based) cloud storage available to the public, 20 years ago, on Yahoo. They shut it down about a decade ago.

    I went with Microsoft as I figured they'd be around a long time, so the risk of it shutting down would be minimal. Security wise, I still practice the secure it or lose it rule. Everything that goes up on OneDrive is encrypted, so if it ever got hacked my s**t's safe.

    I'm a hoarder when it comes to data, in the sense that I seldom delete or uninstall things, but my rate of accumulation isn't that bad. I've got around 2.1TB of data on my hard drives that I've been accumulating for the past (probably exactly) 10 years, and that includes four partitions with Windows on them (one of which is no longer bootable) and several VMs that I copied from my work laptop for when I work from home.

    A great strategy simulation game of the 16bit era. The amount of things you can/must do in this game is just amazing. Rebuilding Earth, constructing a huge mining, industrial, military fleet, setting up routes and giving exact orders to follow. Nothing similar was seen till the 21st century with the X series of games. Of course there was also Millennium 2.2, the game this is a sequel of. :)

    Hmm.. never even heard of that one. Looks interesting.

    BTW, what's with the "...find a citibank near me" thing at the end of the post?

    That's an ad link from the image host. I usually leave it there as I don't want to abuse their hospitality.

    It's a great game, sequel to Millennium 2.2
    A mix of strategy and management sim, with a touch of action.

    When I got this on the Atari ST, I did not like it. While it had everything I liked in a game, it didn't do it for me. I never touched it again. I absolutely loved its sequels though. I plan on going back to it soon. IMO the Atari ST version was if not the best, one of the best versions/ports of this game. I know even the (one of the two) makers of the game David Braben mentioned the BBC Micro as his favorite version. I can't think of a reason other than that he hasn't played yet the Atari ST version.

    Or perhaps sentimental reasons.
