Hi all, these games we love to play keep getting bigger and bigger. Looking to swap out my oldest 750 GB WD drive for a 2 or maybe 4 terabyte one. Over the last decade plus I’ve had great experiences with Western Digital (the Black 7200 RPM variety, particularly) so are those still a safe bet? I bought my last one back in 2017, I think, and it’s been a champ so far.
Oh, and quick question about HDD labels in Windows-- are they at all important to the operating system for finding installation paths, or are they more like “nicknames” for the user’s benefit only? When I set up that last 2TB HDD I stupidly labeled it “2GB_Apr2017” (as if we were back in the early 1990s when a 2 GB drive was actually something you could use), and it’s bugged me since.
