Interesting. I had no idea what a WHS was until I just looked now. Can the separate server pc which I assume is just running multiple HDs be connected to my main pc so I have 24/7 access to those drives?
I definitely need access to all of those drives on a daily basis.
If you need constant fast access to the drives, might as well just keep them in your main box.
My mobo has 8 sata ports and I needed 1 more so bought a cheap sata 3 2 port pcie 1x
card for $20 at Amazon.
WHS machine is going to cost at least $300.
They make molex to sata power cables, so you can extend it a few inches.
