    MY general recommendations
    1) Don't by an external WD (they fail far more often then external drives i see)
    2) ONLY buy an external drive that comes with its own AC adapter (don't rely on a drive to draw sufficient power all the time from USB port (e.g. if USB drive)
    3) Invest in Ghost Imaging Software. Best $50 you'll spend in protecting your files/folders and endless/grief and time if something fails
    => You really want something can do far more then just simple file/folder backup
    => Personally, i use Acronis True Image Home
