i'm in a dilemma, I'll be going india for 19 days next week.. I'm not sure if i should bring a portable harddisk that has CF slot or jus bring a normal external harddisk that needs to pluck to computer? I've some worries.. if i bring the portable harddisk that has CF slot, i do not 1 2 bring the charger because it is extremely bulky, i'm afraid the batteries will deplete easily in cold weather. If i bring a normal external harddisk, i'm afraid i cant find a computer with at least 2 or 3 USB port that is free (2 USB port for harddisk, 1 for card reader). wat do u suggest?
The places i'm going is between -20 degree to 2 degree. I'll be going to Kashmir so i guess the altitude is about 2000m above sea level. I heard that portable harddisk can spoil easily at higher altitude places..
