What's /g/'s consensus on old 3.5" hard drives? Mine still work great but they're just not worth plugging in as an external for just 80 GB of storage when I have a 1-4 TB 2.5" externals now. Should I just throw them in the trash?
I use mine mainly as cold storage drives for data I won't access for awhile. Mostly archives and one or two as pure backups just in case of some sort of clusterfuck failure.
I keep a few large ones in a bank in the event of a house fire or theft as well.
>Buying more things you dont need instead of making use of what you already have
Dumb consumer trash, go back to your "what 900 dollar phone should i buy this month" threads.
put them in the case and get one of these switches.
then you can install gentoos on them.
Some people have disposable income they can use to buy things that makes their life easier you dumb weeaboo faggot
Just because you're living in your mom's basement and have ti choose between buying an SSD and eating for a month doesn't mean it's the case for everyone
I'd say save them for old Xbox HUEG machines.
I had a 80GB Maxtor laying around and a old 2002 Xbox,so I upgraded the old 10GB Seagate in it.
>and before you all go on a rage,almost 95% of the Xbox is PC hardware - even the controller ports,they're just custom MS-made USB 1.1 ports.
They make good targets. Just got around to going back over 5 old hard drives (between 4 GB and 14 GB) from years ago and getting anything that could be important off of them, after which I wiped them and shot at them with my family on New Years.
