As you should all know by now, I'm fairly fanatical about backing up. However, there are some times, such as when you are in the middle of a project and you suffer a crash. You may not have had the chance to backup that one critical piece and now your machine won't boot... What do you do?
Well, for around $20 you can have the Bytecc USB 2.0 to IDE/SATA Adapter Kit. This is one of those devices that is handier than you might think for all kinds of reasons. In a nutshell, it allows you to take a standard hard drive, connect it to another computer via USB and access it just like any other USB drive. You can copy needed files, reformat the drive, basically anything you can do with a USB drive. This very affordable little gizmo has made my life a lot easier on several occasions & is highly recommended.
