Re: OT: SATA Backplanes drivebays and caddies
Sorry for the OT post but I know a few round here are well informed on
the storage industry.
I'm just about to migrate a bunch of PCs to SATA from IDE as the IDE
drive caddies are failing  and I already have my server and a few
PCs using SATA, what I'm looking for is a drivebay / backplane
manufacturer that has 5, 4, 3 and 1 slot internal bays available that
use the *same* tray / housing / caddie.
The tray / housing / caddie doesn't have to be rugged  or cover the
whole drive, it would just be *really* convenient to be able to move
drives around at will.
My search (below) hasn't helped much, has anyone round here got any
sata "removable (disk | drive | harddrive) (caddy | bay | drawer |
tray)" single multi
 I think all ATA removable bays take a bunch of liberties with the
standard anyway and these were cheap and are old
 which I suppose by definition means it's not a caddie
<fx> crickets, cicadas and frogs </fx>
Alternatively if you can think of a better forum for this post a link
would also be appreciated.
