A reader inquired:
I just have been reading your article about the Voyager Q drive dock. I actually use it for backup with bare hard drives for about a year now, and it has been a great way of backing up!
Something I have noted though— as the hard drives I'm using come from different generations (but all 3,5") they all have different packaging if any. That looks very untidy, gets dusty and does not really stack well either.
I have searched the internet many hours but did not find any appropriate cover / bag etc.
Essentially something like the leather carrying case that comes with the OWC Mercury On-The-Go Pro Kit - but for 3,5".
Any chance you came across something that works for this matter? If not: how do you handle the backup drives?
By coincidence, OWC has just started shipping the NewerTech StoraDrive™, which accepts two bare hard drives. Stackable, and with rubber feet, this might be just the solution for anyone backing up with bare hard drives. At about $12.99, it’s a no-brainer in terms of price.
Wiebetech offers their Anti-static drive Case, or even a hard-shelled waterproof case that holds up to ten drives.
