I need to transfer the contents of a folder that currently exists on a SAN. There are about 650,000 files that take up 800 Gigabytes.
For the retrieval, I want to attach it to the server using gigabit ethernet and attach it as a SAN.
When I get the data to the final location, I would like to attach it as an eSATA drive.
I have found drives that work as a NAS and have eSATA available to add additional drives. But I need the ability to attach them as directly with eSATA to pull the files off the device.
