I currently use external hard drives for all of the video storage, but I use a lot! and wanted a better way of doing things , but don't know a lot about things like this ....
First question, I have multiple External Seagate hard drives, various sizes ( 1 & 2 TB ) and wondered if its possible to strip out the HDD from the external enclosure and put multiple ones into one the multi enclosures?
if I do that ,do they remain as they are, or do they all need to be formatted / work together rather than separate drives?
If I couldn't do that with the drives and was to start with new ones, similar question really, if I buy a 5 or 6 bay tower, and fill it with 2TB 3.5 HDDs, do they act as 5 x 2TB drives, or one 10TB drive?
and finally, I cant see anywhere that says, but I presume these enclosures work off one connection to the PC / power ?
probably all a bit simple, but I am simple when it comes to this
