I've recently bought a new macbook pro.
Since my old backup hard drive is failing, I'm planning on buying a new one. I don't want to spend a lot of cash and I would like a decent amount of extra space, so I'll be going for an HDD not an SSD.
Yet I'm wondering, what would be the best data protocol to buy (USB, FW800, Thunderbolt)?
I'd say thunderbolt is overkill since the speed of an HDD won't come near the speed thunderbolt can go (and it's pricey, and has low availability).
Is it worth it to go FW800 over USB2/3 (my mac has USB2 anyways)? I just want the speediest solution.
