    At least 1Tb and to work and last its best there are ones that are better that others. Go for a type that is designed to run 24/7/365 not a normal pc type.

    It says it supports up to 2Tb so I suggest you go for that. Disk capacity is pretty cheap these days. I suggest you need to read the manual to see exactly what specification of hard drive is required.

    Maybe something like this? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WD-Wester...538569?hash=item23604d5e89:g:3e4AAOSw5dNWi6gY

    Note, I'm assuming that when it says that it comes without a hard drive and that it has a 3.5" SATA II interface that they expect you to open up the box and install the hard drive internally - in which case something like the above should do the job but it's not clear if the security system comes with the mounting caddy or whether you have to buy one too.
