The following is a Plus Edition article written by and copyright by Dick Eastman.
A newsletter reader sent an e-mail to me asking about disk drives. His message was longer, but he basically asked, “Where can I find cheap disk drives?” He also said he wasn’t prepared to open the case of his computer, bolt things in, and then hook up cables.
I took this as a bit of a personal challenge. Besides, I wanted another big disk drive for a backup project I had in mind. I decided to purchase a 10 terabyte or larger external disk drive.
NOTE: 10 terabytes is the same as 10,000 gigabytes or 10 million megabytes. By today’s standards, that is a big storage capacity but certainly not the biggest available.
As it turned out, the price even surprised me. It was cheaper than I expected.
