I have a large ammount of data that i need to back up. My hard disk is 250G and its entirely full. I need something big and cheap to make backups on. Most of the things stored on my hard disk are Telivision shows, Movies etc which i download but after watching them i dont want to delete them even though i dont usually watch them again but i like to keep them so that if someone else in my family wants to watch it they can. Im trying to find a External or Internet (whichever is cheaper) Hard-disk or any type of back up device which can create a back up of around 500-1000 GB of data. It doesnt matter if the device is really slow.. because i wont be accessing data on it alot.

Can you guys advice me any cheap hardware which can do this for me ?

A thousand GB doesn't come cheap but I would search Tigerdirect or New Egg for external HDs or if you have an old machine, put in an extra HD and add the machine to your network.

I need something around say 150$... For the moment 350-500GB space would do...

As I said, search tigerdirect or new egg. Maybe they have something in your price range.

You easily pick up a good 500GB drive for $150.
