[LUG] External hard drives


I am wondering about using an external hard drive as back up to my hard
drive. I have never used one so I am wondering if it is a good idea.

Also, any recommendations about which make? And do they come ready
formatted and if so which format? would it be sensible to format it to
say Ext4?

Thanks for any pointers.
