I have an iMac that has a 320 GB hard drive. I need a large (1 - 2 TB) external hard drive to back up my photographs and other files. I purchased a Western Digital a few months back that came with its own proprietary backup software, which I could neither disable or unmount from the desktop, so I returned it. I am looking for a hard drive that just acts like a hard drive, nothing else. I can use Time Machine to do my backups. I don't need the hard drive to come with its own software. Reliability and size is more important than cost, but cost is a factor to some degree. Any suggestions? Thanks!
