I repair computers, most weeks I get clients in who have problems with Windows and virus issues. Most leave with Linux machines, working and no virus … easy! Helps when I tell them Windows you buy, then you get a virus, and you pay again.
But occasionally the hardware is dead and not easy fixes as I don’t get into motherboard repairs or replacements due to cost of bits, time involved and access to test.
To get important files, documents, images and the rest off the hard disk, I drop said disks into a external box with SATA connections then plug it into a Linux box to copy. Linux gets access to most disks when Windows says #what#
Few years back bought a external docking station to make life easy.
Now starting to get clients with ssd, not all are removable as soldered into mother board, but thought I would get a similar box for doing the same… here is where I came adrift as there are so many standard fittings, one slot, two slot, size differences, capacity different …
Hence my question (at last)
Is anyone using a ssd docking station with multiple connection possibilities that I can just slot the card into then connect to my Linux usb 2 or 3. Suggestions on make model and best connection to get.
Much easier with hard disks as we only had 2 options over the last 20 years and now down to one… Mac or pc, towers, desktop, laptop no difference.
Yes did a Amazon search and found a few but they are marked yes for this model and not for others, no demand, or am I asking the wrong question?
Thanks in advance
