Hi all,
Just a quick question, I have one of these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822236065 external hdd's left over from deployment and the mini usb port was damaged to where I cant use it. However, after breaking the case open I see that its just a normal hdd on the inside. I'm wondering if I can just hook it up internally as a backup drive to my current hdd, or would it cause a conflict of some sorts? Thanks for your help.
