Adding more drives
I am in the process of building a server for myself, but at the moment I am trying to find a means by which I can add an additional 8 drives.
All my SATA connections on the Mobo are used, and I have two x 4 bay enclosures ready to go....however, anything I have seen to get the additional drive working I have drawn a blank on.... I have seen a 5 port SATA hub but the company only accepts American Paypal (??????) (I'm in OZ) and I bought a card that supports up to 10 drives, but you could only connect two drives to it.
I am after a means that I can attach these two enclosures so I can use them at any time.
Also do I have to raid these drives???? I am somewhat worried about one of the drives may crash and I would loose a large portion of my data.
Any ideas/input will be greatly appreciated[/FONT]
