So this morning my external hard drive died. My brand new, barely-used 500 GB external hard drive, which had 5 years worth of work-related documents, countless family photo albums and, oh, about 200 GB worth of television and movies. Which I bought barely a month ago. It died.

Words can't even describe how frustrated I am. I took it to the store to get fixed, and they're working on data recovery at the moment, but I want to make sure this never happens again.

So I need your help: I need some external hard drive recommendations. I need something that's portable, quite sturdy and has data recovery services if there's some damage.

I'm currently looking at the LaCie 'Rugged' 500 GB external hard drive as an alternative, but I'm open to suggestions. What are you guys using to back up your files?
