Antec EASY SATA HDD Caddy Package

I have been searching for some time now, for a backup solution for my ever expanding collection of photos and other data. Well I am glad to say that my search is finally over. I just got the Antec Easy SATA HDD Docking Station
with External SATA Connector a couple of days ago. I installed it promptly and was backing up my data within minutes.

The Antec Easy SATA HDD Docking Station
fits into an empty 5.25″ drive bay in your desktop computer, and lets you hot swap internal SATA hard drives. It’s essentially an internally installed HDD dock. It also has an eSATA port for any external SATA devices you might have.

I have not been able to get it to hot swap though. Apparently I might need to change a bios setting for the SATA controller, but I haven’t really gotten into that yet. It’s enough that I can pop in a HDD before startup, do my backup, and take it out after shut down. I will get around to the hot swapping a little later, right now I am content that I got my data backed up – twice! I am already considering getting another HDD to make a third backup, to store at a remote location in case of catastrophe.
