Hey all. Before I get to installing an external HD (and ordering one), I need to know how it works.
I plan on getting a WD Caviar Black 1TB along with an external enclosure--probably this one Newegg.com - Rosewill RX355-X2 BK ABS Cover and internal metal shielding 3.5" Black USB2.0 & eSATA External Enclosure - External Enclosures
My PC specs:
Core i7 920
OCZ Platinum 6GB
What are some precautions I need to watch out for?
I do want to have it on at all times, but not all the time. From the little reading Ive done, you just cant disconnect the hard drive. Is that correct?
EDIT: Apparently the Rosewill has a power switch. That works I guess
BTW, is it okay to format a hard drive while it is in its enclosure using usb/esata?
