    Hi,

    My business repairs computers. I currently use a 250Gb External HDD to transport lots of useful app's, drivers etc.. that sort of thing.

    However, I now require something a little different.

    I need something very similar to an external HDD enclosure. Something that I can connect a IDE and SATA (would be nice) HDD to which I can then connect it to a USB port.

    So basically the same task as what an external enclosure does. However, I need one that is designed so that lots of HDD can be connected and disconnected regularly. I am reluctant to use my current enclosure as I fear it will wear out the connector.

    Any ideas?

    How substantial are the drives inside the caddy.

    I will be unplugging the drives a lot.

    If there was an external box that had an IDE and Power cable coming out of it that were replaceable that would be ok. As when the cable wears out I can replace it.

    I had an alternative idea, mounting some ports on my case to allow me to plug in drives etc...

    So, have posted in case modding about this.

    Cheers,
