Can I scrap the DVD Drive once WHS is installed?? RRS feed

  • Question


    Hello all,

                  I have the 120 day eval of WHS setup on a slightly older P4 clone that I built, it doesnt have any SATA connection on the motherboard.  I currently have a 250 Gig EIDE drive and (2) 500 Gig EIDE drives installed along with the DVD drive.  Out of that after I moved over all my Music, Videos and Pictures and setup 2 different machines to backup I now have less than 250 Gig free.  I was thinking I could pull the DVD drive and drop in another 500 gig drive for $100 or so and that would give me some breathing room.  Thoughts anyone??

  • Shouldn't be a problem - I have done this on my beta test WHS and then on my current system.  I bought some 3.5" to 5.25" brackets so that I could install hard drives into the bays for optical drives in my system.
