I had a Western Digital Passport from 2011 that died on me a few months ago. I was thinking about getting something else so I can do external file backups. I came across some hard drive docking stations that you can stick regular desktop hard drives into and have that be your backup device. Are those more reliable than thinks like Western Digital passports?
