View Full Version : [all variants] Multiple Connections External HDD

April 20th, 2009, 12:08 AM
Hello all,

I am in need of a huge external hard drive. I am still deciding whether to go with a 2TB, or just 1TB, then get another if need be later.
Even with having that hard drive, it will need a power source, (can't be USB powered over 500gb, i believe) and so I will still have the annoyance of copying files from pc to pc. (I have a desktop, a laptop and a messy cluster.)
I was wondering if the newer externals allowed you to take advantage of both the USB and FireWire at the same time and use it from multiple computers instead of switching plugs.
Yes, i know I can net share the drive, but that really won't work in my situation.

Thanks in advance.
