Apricorn DriveWire – The little life saver

If you’re like me, you have some old computer(s) laying around gathering dust in your basement somewhere.  With my move to move mobile platforms, only my servers really remain non-portable.  Of course, I often find myself needing to pull some information from a server drive or even the other day, from an old desktop drive.  About a year ago, I was moving a desktop to a laptop with Acronis True Image.  Of course, the desktop 3.5” drive doesn’t fit in a laptop and I could have gone the traditional way of connecting the laptop 2.5” drive to the desktop and cloning the drive that way, but that means the cloning process would use the old hardware and take longer.  Time is precious, so I found another solution.
My Apricorn DriveWire has saved the day more than just a few times!  It allows me the ability to connect just about any type of drive to my USB 2.0 port on just about any computer.  Anything from a 40-pin PATA to a 44-pin PATA toSATA.  They’re all supported and at under $40, this one makes a great stocking stuffer for the geek in your life! LOL  😀
