I accumulated several external usb drives over time. Now, I end up with the following drives:
- Western Digital 3.5" 1TB USB 2 (less than 1 year old)
- Iomega 3.5" 320GB USB2 (2+ year old)
- Custom built 2.5" 500GB WD Caviar Black USB2 / eSata
- Western Digital 2.5" 500 GB USB2
My initial Idea was to reuse an "old" desktop PC as File / Media Server / NAS but I need an external drive for Virtual Machines (to attach to my notebook via eSata) as well.
At the end, did you end up with the same (or similar) amount of external drives? How do you reuse / span contents on such a storage ?
I already have a backup strategy with Windows 7 Backup using the 1TB drive.
Thank you for support.
