Going through my pile of old computer parts that I've scrapped from alleys I have come across several HDDs. They are older technology and would it be worth it to convert them to external HDDs? I know that aren't large but I'm wondering if havnig a couple of extra for individual specific purposes would be good. E.g. computer repair & OS tools; music & videos, video games, personal files. Here are the various drives:
WD IDE 160GB 7200
Samsung IDE 120GB 5400
WD SATA 80GB 7200
WD SATA 120GB 7200
SG SATA 250GB 7200
Should I even bother converting them to XHDD? Which ones?
What would be a "good" enclosure to use?
What would be a cheap enclosure to use? What are the disadvantages of a cheap one?
