Anyone know the largest Harddrive I can put into a Compaq Deskpro? Ideally, I'd like to fit a 200Gb HDD if possible!

*** Deskpro details (or markings I can see on the case)***
Compaq Deskpro
DP2000 5200MMX 2100UK
8814BK670587
*********************************************


Just incase you are wondering... It is used only as a file server (no monitor), it is quiet & reliable - so I'd really
like to keep it!

PS, Is there such thing as a network file server (PC-Less)? - I mean like, you fit harddrive(s) & plug it into your
network.

Without knowing what model of DeskPro, it's impossible to say, but I
seriously doubt a Pentium model would take more than 120GB and probably a
lot less. I had a DeskPro XL Pentium 133 that would not take more than 8GB.

Isn't
Compaq Deskpro
DP2000 5200MMX 2100UK
8814BK670587

Enough Info?

I'm not entirely sure but I assumed the first alphanumeric line was the model & the 2nd the serial number!

DP2000 = Deskpro 2000 perhaps?
5200MMX = Intel CPU Model 5 (Pentium 1), 200MMX
2100UK = ?????
(not that good with Compaq - Like Packard bell, I've seen the same model with different innards!)


Does this help?

Yep. DeskPro 2000. Probably 127GB is tops. No 48-bit LBA on that old of a
machine.

Could add a PCI IDE card. Probably not worth the investment.

the answer to the model question has been beaten enough...

as to your other question, yes. there are PC-less servers (called
appliances) that are nothing but storage, and enough OS kernel to present
itself to the network as a Mac, Sun, Novell, MS, Linux server. Configure
with a browser, IP it, and plug it into the network.

Popular devices can be found under the heading of NAS (network attatched
storage). One of the most popular ones that comes to mind is the Quantum
SNAP server. You can get them with sizes up into the multi-terrabyte range.
They arent exactly cheap, but much less expensive that a SCSI or
Fibrechannel alternative.

HTH,

NuTs
