I've been building PC ( more for gaming) for years. I've notice alot of Nikoncafer's posting about that backup drive or main harddrive crashing. I think photog that need a stable harddrive should look into solid state drives. There just like RAM ( no moving parts ) but Harddrive size. The downfall...there expensive! Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available) There not as big...but for 500 bucks...you cant go wrong.
