connecting, but not simultaneously using, many drives
I read a post somewhere else. The poster asked:
"I have a dozen HDDs that I keep in mobile racks and switch as needed.
I only need them one at a time, not all together, and I don't want to
move them physically or manually reconnect them. Is there any kind of
external container where I can put them all and switch between them,
powering up only the needed one?"
They don't say if its SATA or PATA (or scsi). They mention the drives are
between 400 GB and 800 GB each.
They say they wish to save electricity.
So, is there a solution for them? Or is their desire to have many drives
connected, but powered up, freakish?
