External HDD Enclosure question
I work as a deskside support tech and from time to time i will have to do data transfers from hdd to hdd.
My company has been getting new laptops with SATA drives in them and now i need to find a enclosure that will do SATA to USB transfer.
BUT.... i want to find an enclosure that has IDE and SATA internally to USB. I mainly work with 2.5in drives.
could i use a 3.5in drive enclosure to work with 2,5in drives??
some people say yes, some say no.
any suggestions will be appreciated
and what external enclosure would be good to buy... cheap

I've never heard of a 2.5" enclosure that'll do both SATA and IDE, so you may have to go with a setup like:
You can prolly find the notebook-->desktop adapter cheaper elsewhere, but hopefully that'll give you a decent starting point.

I don't know if SATA notebook drives have different connectors than desktop drives but that may be where you'll have to come up with adapters too. Can't say I've seen any, but then I haven't had to find one yet...
