My dad recently got a 20GB hard drive. Yes, it's a PATA drive. Is a 20GB hard drive all that useful in this day and age?

Well, Mr. McMahon, I would need an enclosure for the drive.

I was thinking to use it to backup precious files, then leave it in a drawer. A 20GB pen drive is very cheap now, and probably cheaper than the enclosure.

A Deja Vu is usually a glitch in the Matrix, but apparently not in this case. <g> I answered this almost identical question recently in a previous topic. Scott.
