"When I first built my Windows Home Server, I built it using an old Intel Server cabinet because I wanted a lot of drive bays, 6 to be exact. I filled it with 6 500GB hard drives, for a total of 3TB of drive space. I figured that would last me a while for file storage and backups of the computers in the house. I was right. . . for a while."
I was browsing the web today looking for ways to expand my Windows Home Server, as I am getting close to running out of disk space, and I found a post on We Got Served linking to a blog discussing this rather nice little bit of kit. This is the Rosewill RSV-S8 external device enclosure, and it allows you to expand your system by a hefty 8 SATA-II drives. It also comes with a 2 port eSATA PCIe card to allowing you to connect it to your existing PC. Unfortunately, the price is the only thing that puts me off, $349 on newegg.com, but if you are looking for that much disk storage then I guess money is no issue!
