So, I'm trying to cut down on computers -- I had a laptop, and 2 desktops in the studio, and basically stopped using the oldest one. But what I did need it for is that it has the archive of my tracks going back to about 1996 or so. And it has half-finished and barely-there track ideas that I sometimes make something of later. 1999 seems to have been a big year for me to start but not finish tracks.|
So what I did is bought a PCI IDE controller to hang the old hard disks off of in the new computer, which now has 4 hard drives, a CD Burner and a DVD Burner, which is pretty obscene if you think about it. The last hard drive is drive I:
Here's a silly thing about PCs and windows. A hard drive is NEVER A or B. Those drive letters are reserved for floppy drives. My last floppy bit the dust last year when I put the power connector on it backwards. Actual smoke came out of the computer when I did that.
So anyway I now have 240 gigabytes of disk storange on one computer, and I have controller slots for 2 more. Who'd a thunk it 10 years ago.
