Hello there,

i m building my new workstation, i bought everything except the Hard drive. My Asrock Trx40 Taichi as motherboard, and i would like to have 3 hard drive :

  1. One for windows and my 3D softwares (i guess i should go for a NVME like the samsung pro 1TB right ? )
  2. One for my 3D project libraries (aka, the folders i create for each client when i have to work) i need 2TB for that
  3. One for dowloads / some videogames / music /less important software etc etc (i guess i should have a normal SSD samsung EVO 860 for that right ?
the question is, what do you suggest to buy for the Hard drive number 2 ? is a NVME a wise choice ? I need an hard drive that could last the longer possible because it will be a real disaster if i lose my job files. For the last 7 years i had my 2TB SATA and he is still doing a good job!

thank you and sorry for my english!

  1. Samsung 970 EVO. Pro not really needed
  2. Either 860 EVO or another 970 EVO
  3. Anything.
it will be a real disaster if i lose my job files
Loss of a drive should NEVER involve loss of data. Ever.

This is why we have backups.
 
With a 4 TB external drive costing but $70-90 these days, you could back up everything via Macrium Reflect periodically.

If your mainboard supports at least a pair of NVME drives, I'd get a second one perhaps 2 TB in size for working space, as 970 EVO and similar are often at attractive prices on sale.
