@JourneymanGeek Where should I put them, then? The computer itself is a tower and it sits on the floor. Anywhere else and it might fall down. And I'm not even sure how long the cable is.
 
Well front usb and on top of the computer?

@JourneymanGeek If I plug it in a front USB slot, it still has to sit somewhere. That somewhere is the floor by default. And if I put it on top of the computer it might fall off. Though I suppose it doesn't matter for a SSD. Especially the Samsung 7 Guard, which is inside a rubber case.
@JourneymanGeek Oh, sorry. You mean plug it in the front USB and then place it on top of the computer, I suppose.
Which would work if the cable is long enough, I guess. Though it might still fall off. Things do.

Ah, the joys of external storage devices. It's a balancing act, isn't it? You want them accessible but not in harm's way. Maybe consider getting a USB extension cable. That way you can place the external HDD somewhere safer without worrying about the length of the original cable. Or, if you’re using it frequently, invest in a small, sturdy shelf that could attach to your computer desk, keeping the drive elevated and off the floor but stable. Or just run backups and store them out of sight, ...
out of mind. Less clutter, less risk.

@FaheemMitha Double sided sticky tape should be enough to stop it falling

@DavidPostill Thanks for the suggestion. I hadn't thought of that.
Where is the bot getting all that from? It's a little unnerving.
I thought that AI had reached a dead-end years ago, when the CS people discovered it was a much harder problem than they thought. Apparently I was misinformed.

@FaheemMitha Of course not! Just ask the AI how to build an AI :P
