Need help buying 1TB Internal Hard Drive and enclosure using USB External Hard Drive for Backup on Dell 4600 & Dell 3000.
Will this work?
I think I have to buy 1TB internal hard drive
7200 rpm rotation speed
Sata or IDE doesn't matter if I connect by USB right?
32mb cache buffer size
I have Windows XP on both.
4600 has 1.5GB Ram
Seagate ST3500630AS (500 GB) and ST380011A (80 GB)
3000 has 1.25GB Ram
80 GB has about 2GB free on it
The enclosure you buy must match the drive type - most probably SATA, since large capacity EIDE drives are becoming extinct quite rapidly.
I would suggest a WD drive - not Seagate at the moment.
If I buy internal and enclosure vs external HDD
do I need to find some software to backup with?
