Hi Amanda, thanks for the tips.
Do you also have your editing software on my passport and edit videos off of that or just save your files there and editing software is in your mac?

Craig 26/09/2021 - 5:31 AM

The computer doesn't work harder regardless of the location of the harddrive. Please don't teach people wrong information because you have been too ignorant to do the proper research first.

George Thengummoottil 26/09/2021 - 5:31 AM

Unfortunately most of the things specified in the video is wrong…

MarCinema 26/09/2021 - 5:31 AM

I just bought a pass port and I just ran a lot of test, The passport was faster. HMMM UPDATE: NVM the lacie is better for editing . IDK how that science works but yeah.

Hello Amanda,
I was wondering if you can help me, I have a 2.5 inch WD my passport ultra (4TB), 2017 version, suddenly it did not show the files and it does not eject when I eject it on my MacBook Pro, when I eject it, it comes back and it makes a very light sound, then turns normal, is there anyway to fix it rather than open it? Is it possible that the PCB is not working properly? I checked the HDD health and it says it's good nothing wrong with it, I installed the wd recoverit app and check it for a bit and it showed files, meaning I can restore them, but not yet cause I don't have enough storage, so in order to restore my missing files I am gonna need to buy a 4TB or 5TB one, that led me to make a search, I found out there are CMR, SMR and other types of drivers, I figured my WD ultra (4tb) 2017 might be a SMR drive, that is why it is faulty now or maybe it is the PCB! So, as I mentioned before I wanna buy another (4TB), that is why I wanna make sure that I buy a CMR one, Can you please give me a list of 2.5 inch (4Tb) drives that are CMR not SMR? Even if it was a 2015 or 2016 versions? Or any older, newer ones? Cause I am planning to buy 2 drivers for now! Or any good reliable 2.5 HDD recommendation or advice? I would be grateful!

Thank you

I would put EXTERNAL HDDs to your video name. Was looki

JPavilion 26/09/2021 - 5:31 AM

Good list,
Things are expanding for editing and I need something reliable.

Jwan Manuel 26/09/2021 - 5:31 AM

What about saving to iCloud? Would that be an option? How would that work?

The Nothing Network 26/09/2021 - 5:31 AM

you should use high speed SSD while editing. especially for 4k footage

Nathan German 26/09/2021 - 5:31 AM

What are your thoughts on USB-3 vs USB-C? I have a computer with ports for either so is there any advantage one way vs the other?

Peter Slater 26/09/2021 - 5:31 AM

What is the difference (benefit/disadvantage) to using an External HD verses a secondary internal HD (assuming completed projects are archived and removed to reclaim space on the internal)?

Taylor The Doll 26/09/2021 - 5:31 AM

Hi Amanda, can you tell me how do you avoid filling up your storage on your Mac? I just purchased a passport for Mac about a week ago I still have the storage issue. I just literally reset my computer to factory reset hoping that would help. I would love to know what people are doing. I know I can’t be the only one running into this issue.

X Æ A-Xii 26/09/2021 - 5:31 AM

You're hot.

R. Powell 26/09/2021 - 5:31 AM

Rosanna Xie. 26/09/2021 - 5:31 AM

I’m very new to hard drives and I recently borrowed my sisters but it just suddenly stopped working and I’m pretty sure I broke it. I was using it to do fcpx editing on it, did I do something wrong? Did I use the hard drive wrong?

Maria Alejandra 26/09/2021 - 5:31 AM

Thank you so much! This was so helpful, I am inexperienced with hard drives, but this video was clear and concise 🙂 It cleared my doubts about hard drives.

Andrea Celis 26/09/2021 - 5:31 AM

So I have google drive for backing things up but when I upload it takes YEARS. What are you thoughts on google drive? Should I get rid of it and buy an external drive instead? This vid was great! Thank you!

Newbie MTB 26/09/2021 - 5:31 AM

Great video. Do you keep a backup My Passport for every LaCie? For example, do you recommend having a backup for every primary external HD?

Brandon Krieger 26/09/2021 - 5:31 AM

Great video, for travel I use the Lacie DJI Copilot it is amazing at backing up different devices on the fly, as well as transferring over. Very rugged as well.

Christian Waddell 26/09/2021 - 5:31 AM

Didn't you notice that the LACIE cords become disconnected easily on the rugged version. Drove me crazy.

Creative Art Network 26/09/2021 - 5:31 AM

super helfpful, thank you!

@ 2:10 Glitching issues are called playback issues or skipping frames. This is because the data is not being read fast enough to be displayed correctly on the screen. You have settings in the video edting software to ensure that you can edit video based on the limitations of your system. For example if you are using an old system with old drives you can set the video software to work in a lower resolution (smaller file sizes) so that it can manage the minimum data throughput that is needed that matches your system speed.

xpez 26/09/2021 - 5:31 AM

computer energy = system resources (CPU, RAM, HARD DRIVES) Using your local hard drive to edit is fine. But you wont get the same performance unless you have a super fast hard drive for the local drive. Its not good practice to use your local drive as an editing drive because you need a clean empty drive to write data to very quickly. If your computer has to write data to a drive full of OTHER DATA like your system files, other applications, and your family photos, that is space on the drive it has to ignore. Basically, you aren't using the hard drive to its fullest potential. And for editing its all about removing boundaries so the data can be written and erased as fast as possible. This translates into SMOOTH PLAYBACK. If your hard drive is full of other files not related to the video editing data, chances are it can cause that read/write times to be much slower. Also, reading and writing data over and over wears out the drives faster. This may take a while with SSDs and modern drives but chances are, eventually, your video drive will FAIL much sooner than the dedicated system drive or when your system drive fails you do not want VITAL WORK FILES ON IT either. You want only your apps and data that are easily replaced. Your important work data should be on another drive that is backed up regularly. Most pro editors have specific drives that are for editing only and when the project is done the project files are moved to another drive for storage..

The Weekly Taco 26/09/2021 - 5:31 AM

Thanks for your help 🙂 great video

ScALa-Films 26/09/2021 - 5:31 AM

External Harddisks are a good solution for Backup on the Road but certainly not fast to work on (This is actually the slowest solution). An internal SSD is a lot faster to work on, than an External HardDisk. And now there are the new NVME on Motherboard plugged SSD's, they work a lot faster than wired SSD.
Transfer Speed:

HDD = 200Mo/s
SSD = 500Mo/s
NVMe SSD = 3500Mo/s

It is appreciated that you made this video however it would also be appreciated if you put on the title of the video "Best video editing external hard drives" just because I'm looking for an internal hard drive for my PC and I thought because of the title you'd show some cudas or WD or others alike thanks tho
