Buying a hard drive dock - Linux compatible?
This is my first message although I have been an avid reader for quite some time. Normally I find the information I need by doing a search, but this time I seem to be stumped.
I am running a used HP Compaq which is about 4 years old. 90Gig Sata HDD, DVD burner and 4Gig ram. I installed Fedora 17 two months ago as a third and final attempt to rid myself of Windows, and it is fabulous. The computer runs well, but the case can only hold one drive at a time, and I want a second drive as a backup.
Will do the backup with Clonezilla which has ample literature which I can use to help me through the process.
I have two ways of going about this.
1. Either use my external portable USB drive to hold the image which I then burn to the new hard drive, or
2. Use a USB Sata hard drive dock which will handle both desktop and laptop drives and do a straight Drive to Drive clone.
I would prefer to use the docking station because my external USB drive holds all my backup files which I do not want to lose if something should go wrong.
Current searches for hard drive docks only tell me that they will handle Windows and/or Mac file types.
My question is, if I go the way of the external dock:
Which USB hard drive docks will handle Linux?
I look forward to your help.
