I have a 1TB SSD and two 1TB hard drives currently and they are all maxed out. The one is starting to fail according to crystal disk info so I kind of want to take advantage of the situation and just upgrade to a 4TB drive and migrate everything from the failing one over. I found these two drives on amazon, and wanted to know which one is better. I probably have seen/had more seagate drives fail, but their newer ones look kind of good.

I'm not gonna use raid or anything like that since I don't have any use for it.

I have two 4tb WD Blue's in my server with no issues.
Please note that the WD is 5400 RPM's and the Ironwolf is 5900. in case you were looking for 7200rpm's...
Lastly, in case you have an older system, you pretty much need a bios with a uefi/graphical interface to support anything over 2tb.
