Re: Building an external hard drive
Using the enclosure shouldn't be a problem I guess, as long as you can isolate the components and can fit them in there, although I don't see the point. Most cases have very practical placeholders for drives.
However, it would be useful to see your whole case and specs. If you are still using FireWire and IDE drives, chances are your computer is kinda old, and investing all that cash (because a couple of TB on SSDs is quite the investment) would first require a check to avoid bottlenecking.
