    What will be the use of ATA 100/133 HD


    Hi folks,


    I have several 40G ATA 100/133 HDs which are NOT too old still running strong. The motherboards which I'm now running support SATA-II HD. Although I can still use those ATA HDs sacrisfying the speed.

    How I shall use those HDs? Treating them as scrap will be a little bid waste. Suggestion would be appreciated. TIA.

    You could install an IDE RAID card and set up some volumes for storage purposes.

    Whether you meant on new PCs or on old PCs. All PCs recently built are mounted with 120G SATA-II HD. The space is sufficient.


    If you meant on old PCs. I have old PII and PIII PCs and old RAID card, 0,1,0+1 (software RAID), PC100 RAM total448MB, PC133 RAM total 384MB, 15" LCD display, etc. I'm considering building NAS

    Yeah, a NAS would make good use of them.
