    For the PC challenged is today's backup/software, coming with external drives, reasonable replacement for Macrium?

    I do use Macrium paid. Recently my external desktop drive failed, so for the time being, I'm using an ancient Seagate USB drive.

    In the past I used to format any/all ext drives, & use Macrium.

    Are larger storage drives more apt to fail, than smaller capacity drives?

    EXT drives all about the same, get the best price, or is a brand mo better. I would think reliability longevity, would be, mostly equal across brands.

    AC powered, if you leave a usb drive plugged in isn't it always on, or can they switched off, without docking?

    It's been along time since I needed to shop for ext drive.
