External backup drive q

Postby buggs1a » Tue Jan 14, 2020 1:35 pm

I need to get a backup drive and will be going to Best Buy. What’s a good external that’s better then 5400rpm? I don’t see rpm mentioned for anything and I assume they’re all 5400. I will be getting something over 1tb but no idea about their rpm. Any suggestions would really be appreciated.

Thanks.
I tried posting in v6 forum and it’s not showing after I hit submit. Any ideas?
I can’t install 6.82. It says I need to be online to install but I am.
I got it working.
But my post in the v6 support forum still doesn’t show. Hmm.

I see it there. You might need to re-enter your key in the profile.
