Recently my computer crashed and it was quite a frustrating experience. When your computer is down, you really lose a lot of productivity. It takes a while to get all your files out of the old computer, setup a new machine or fix the old one, and re-install all the software and setup all settings etc…. One of the things I had to do was to transfer my files from the old hard to the new hardrive. In order to do this, you have to open up the compter box, yank out the the old hard drive and if you know what you are doing you will be lucky to get everything out of it without damaging the old drive. Although I backup most of my files, I still had some files I needed from the old hard drive.
I recently came across these really cool USB Hard Drive Docks that would have made all this much more easier. These USB Docks can also give a new life to your old hard drives which can be setup as an external back up drive. Pretty cool gadget!
