Once I had that problem, lots of small drives hanging around.  Then I decided to load mining software on them and sell them, so that prospective miners could plug and go.  Poof, problem solved.  That was back in the day where mining was so profitable you didn't want to miss a day, and the premium I charged on these drives more than made up for itself by allowing miners to get up to speed ASAP.

Nowadays, mining with bootable USB or CD is much more practical, and mining is far less profitable.

If I have small drives anymore I just treat them like blank high-capacity floppy disks, sort of disposable.  Here, you want that movie/backup/whatever?  Take a drive. etc.  Just grab yourself one of these and literally treat the drives as a removable disk.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

Those are great, and we use many different brands and models of those HDD docks. I've always found eSATA to be clunky, and USB2.0 is slooow. Make sure to pick up a USB 3.0 dock, and you'll thank me later.

cheers

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

I could really use the smallest sata drives you have.

You and I have done a deal before.

Can I give you 5 BTC for the 4x Maxtor?  Is that too low ball?

I want a single IDE drive (small)

I recommend asking me for a signature from my GPG key before doing a trade. I will NEVER deny such a request.
