I have had bad luck with portable USB storage.
Such as the small 'sticks', and larger hard drives.
I have had them all fail on me.  I am  tired of it.
I think I wud do better if I used portable USB storage with its own
110v power supply (adapter).  I have had a few in the past, and they
never failed on me.
Am I thinking right?  Someone recommend a good 2TB drive?
