I've got about 25 old IDE hard drives with bits and pieces of data, that I want to copy to one location.
I've got a Win7 PC open with an IDE and power lead loose, for connection of the drives one by one.
Do I have to the turn the Win7 PC off every time I want to remove one drive and connect another
or is there some method of safely semi-"Hot Swapping" ?
(e.g. only remove/insert the IDE lead when the power in disconnected).
