Good evening,

The last few years I sold some old computers and notebooks to clear out
my room a bit. One of the only things I kept are harddisks. And there
are quite a large amount of them left :) .

I am now looking for a casing that can house two or more SATA or PATA
drives and can be connected to the computer via USB 2.0. RAID capability
is nice, but not required. I found some casings on a USA site, but
unfortunately they don't deliver internationaly (I live in the

O ... and are there casings available for two or more 2.5" SATA or PATA

Does somebody know a place where I can find/order someting?

It would be great to have a massive "storage box" available for all my

 Put each drive in a removable bay and keep them on a shelf like books. I
have over a dozen that are filed this way. I used to have them in a case
when I had less but that only generates heat and can cause premature failure
among other difficulties. Much better to have at least less used drives or
older opens that are living on borrowed time sitting cool. If you were to
use firewire interface I believe you may add not have to reboot as you would
with the removable bays.
