Alternative Front Loaded HDU Case
I also use front loading HDUs for multiple "fast changing" (although they are not hot swap it is still a great advantage if you like to change OS often).

Actually I had 4 drives at one time
At one time while changing the desk top over to Linux I had 4 hard drives plugged in and running . . 2 each EIDE abnd 2 each SATA drives as IDE NOT listed as RAID So I could copy files from the windows crap to LINUX folders .. Now I am down to just 3 drives plugged in 1 EIDE and 2 SATA ( EIDE drives with SATA drive adapters added onto them ) . . I drive is Windblows crap ( just games now ) and the other is a SATA connected and runs Linux ( Ubuntu ) with Virtual Box added in so I can run Bleeping windblows programs inside of Linux ( companies who will NOT make a Linux version of their stuff ) Like ADS Tech moves video to the computer via the VCR and Pinnacle Studios for editing the movies to add to Youtube dot com /jackie40d. . The third drive connected to SATA ( using the SATA adapter ) is seen by both O/S and is used for saving extra junk there . . plus I have a USB 160 gig Back Up drive attached and both O/S's see it . . what I wonder is why the GIANT drives of 0ver 250 gig's space I have had windows loaded with tons of programs on a 80 gig drive AND never got beyond 50% filled . . I now have Linux on a 120 gig HD and Virtual box has 40 gig of that for windows an I still do not have over 50 % of it filled and Pinnacle studio has about 4.5 gig of the Virtual box hard drive . . So what do you add to the giant drives ? . . I add the movies to the same directory out on the second SATA drive ( tobemovies directory from inside virtual Box with windows XP Pro added ) Oh yeah I have a Person who destroys Windows almost every day which I made his computer LINUX ( Ubuntu ) and I do not see him very much any more I ALMOST MISS HIM ! LMAO . . :rolleyes:
