Hi all, I have about a dozen or more external USB / SATA / SSD drives that I use for my backups. I currently use yellow postits to lable them but obviously they don't last very long - anyone gor any suggestions as to what I could use ? ideally something I can write on and be removable ( keep it clean please )

I permanent mark them with an ID code (using one of these: Brother P-Touch 65 Labelling Machine: Amazon[^] and then record usage / location in a spreadsheet (which one day I'll get round to databasing, but it's a low priority).
Since I also include my USB sticks*, it's just easier as a spreadsheet has more space than a label would.

It's less of a joke than you might think. We now use 32GB SanDisk Flash drives as our distribution medium for all software: OS images, products, etc. It's cheaper and faster than burning DVD's and such.
I personally use paper tags just like the one you showed for items I submit to manufacturing. Of course, they turn around and make fancy-schmancy printed tags that the customer sees .
