as someone desperately trying to get to grips with all these new types of connections, brand names, PATA ATA & SATA, IDE & SCSI, etc.
i throw out a plea for help
What I want are 2 things:
a backup drive that i might backup everything to once a week & keep off the premises
another drive simply to have more space to work with and do more regular smaller backups to.
I dont fully understand these racks - are they external, internal or can they be either?
Okay, looking at the link in the DC backupguide for mobile external racks
there seems to be both on offer there at directron.com
Do they then work with all HDs?
If they internal do you need extra fans? Likewise with external?
this ones a bit out of my price range but looks good! http://www.sabiostorage.com/
From Review:Racks come in two pieces, and inner tray and an outer rack. Hard drives are mounted in the trays, while the outer racks get installed in your computer case.
So you gotta first have space in your computer, then you need to buy:
does usb2 do for internal removable drives or do you need something more exotic!
I read (somewhere here I think) that firewire isnt so good.
Has anyone used the Maxtor one touch II (Retrospect) backup software?
sorry for barraging ye with questions
thanks for any help
