External hard drive enclosure
So, here's the situation. I own a computer business. I'm looking to get a "test pc" so that when customer's bring in their virus infected pc's, I can hook their hard drive up as a slave on the "test pc" and scan for viruses. I've been looking at some cheap desktops because the only thing I will be using the pc for is for scanning hard drives.
Now, I've always wanted to have a laptop to carry around to customer sites because of the ease of diagnosing networking problems among other things. So that brings me to this. If I end up getting a laptop, could I just purchase an external hard drive enclsure so that I could still scan hard drives for viruses? I'm not familiar with how these things work. About all I know is that most of them connect to a PC via USB. Any help is much appreciated.
