Hi Gary,
Can you point me to this drive.

I have been looking at the LaCie Rugged Hard Disk 500GB but I can't find any info on how fast it is. The 320GB is 7200 rpm so I wonder if the 500GB is7200rpm

Hi Simon I just use the 320g drive as it seems to be the only one at 7,200

I do have some 5,400 ones and they work fine too but I only use them for small jobs or as transfer drives till I get back to base.

In the last couple of trips I started taking along a couple of G-Drive minis. I'll copy my camera files to one. Then make a duplicate of the files on the second.

Prior to that I was using a mirrored RAID in a Firmtek case. Takes up too much space in my luggage. It's easier to get field power for this setup and it takes up a fraction of the volume.
