I have searched until I'm but I just can't find it. A while back, there was a neat THG article about a USB device with software that would allow one to clone a failing laptop drive and then swap the drives. The device was only about 80 USD and I thought it was pretty interesting. I never got around to buying one, but I thought I had bookmarked the article and maybe even put the device in one of my wish-list/shopping carts.
But, Lo! I am unable to find anything.
Does anyone here remember the article and happen to recall the name of the device?
P.S. I'm not yet in an emergency situation; I just want to be ready beforehand! :-)
I finally figured out the right way to search --- I went to NewEgg and searched for drive enclosures and then asked for a search narrowed by manufacturers and then clicked "More..." to see all manufacturers. I thought I would recognize it and I did falsely recognize a couple before I realized it was Apricorn.
Then I was able to search THG for "Apricorn" and that brought it up quick as a bunny!
Maybe this will help someone else. A few keywords just to help out.
