Kind of new to data archiving. I've officially run out of sata ports for internal drives, and usb ports for external drives. What do you guys use for mass data storage? I'm kind of looking for something I can just insert a hard drive a bunch of hard drives into. My issue isn't the amount of drives, its the inability to have them all connected at once. I don't need fast access, I just want everything to be connected to my pc all at once.
Usb hub for external drives so you can attach more? Nas is also an option, or selling/replacing the current drives for higher capacity ones.
>>70570146> run out of USB ports?Add usb hubs
>>70570146Maybe connect USB hubs to USB hubs to have more USB ports?Dummy...
>>70570146really just started, still filling up sata portsafter they're out i'll probably buy some lsi/avago/broadcom sas hba card for 8 more sata ports per card
Time to build a server anon
>>70570146g suite with everything encrypted
>>70570146NAS is the only realistic way to go. More USB drives puts more load on the USB port and your bandwidth goes down the tubes. Get with the program and buy for future growth and expansion.
