I generate a reasonable amount of data, 350GB/year or so as a photographer, so I have about 6 hard drives with half of them kept offsite. Is there a drive enclosure that's easy to get a 3.5" SATA disk in and out?

Alternately is there anything like a drive bay so I can just plug the power and SATA cords into the drive, do my backup, then unplug and put back into storage? Just trying to find a reasonably priced long term workable solution

TIA :)

You'll be wanting E-SATA, the drive comes with a pci card that has the external sata connector on it.. its fast and the price per gig is not too bad.

Flamer.

You have to buy an ESATA card yourself, like this one

I just went with a Seagate hard drive in a standard USB enclosure, though the enclosure has ESATA which I can always use later if I feel like it.
