So how long is that going to stay connected?
You know there's one thing that concern me about those new SATA drives that I am now getting in my office in our new computers..... those cables. It just seems to me that they seem a heck of a lot flimsier than the old fashioned ones. In fact on my home PC ....yeah, yeah .... the one I'm STILL building.... I've knocked off the data cable putting in cards a couple of times now.
And I think I need to start carrying spare SATA parts and certainly need to get a SATA ready USB enclosure. One of the gang on the malware lists said that she was delayed a bit tracking down cables and hardware so she could work on an infested drive.
My normal trick of moving data from one computer to the other and then hanging the old drive off the new system isn't going to work this time without additional cables and connections. It has no IDE cables inside the Dell Optiplex we just got.
So how many spare parts do you have lying around?
