How to add multiple hard drives?
Posted on 2004-08-10
Im currently going through a lot of hard drive space at the moment, and I'd quite like to get an external hard drive. (Ive used all my interal hard drive slots). However, I figure ill probably burn through that quite quickly as well.
I noticed that its possible to get an external hard drive bay, which internal hard drives can be slotted into, which works out slightly cheaper than an external.
So i was wondering if its possible to get an external unit with, for example, 4 bays? I looked around on the net, but could only find random junk websites trying to sell me useless stuff. Does anyone have an example of what I need? Or even any alternate solutions?
Also, i noticed that its possible to buy something called a "rackmount server".... what is that, and would it be the slightest bit useful? (im not going to buy one, they cost £lots, im just curious). Once again, any time i try to search for rackmount servers I get a thousand websites selling me them but none telling me what they actually do.
For what its worth, I live in the UK and im not really a fan of buying things online, so im looking for explanations of what i need rather than links to online stores.
Thanks in advance.
