Earlier in the year I did a blog on the wonderful contraption of Virus Lock. I had to retire the device because I’ve moved on to SATA drives and this is only for IDE drives.
Back up for a second – the concept for the Virus Lock is that you are able to have two different machines in one tower … two hard drives separated by a physical switch that allows only one (or both depending on the setting) hard drive to receive power at any point in time. This is an excellent solution for back-ups or for just having two machines (be aware of licensing restrictions).
Well, I’ve recently resurrected this hardware contraption. Why? Because I recently discovered IDE to SATA power converters. What a wonderful thing!
Until next time …
