SATA enclosure with rj45 interface

By trithumb
Apr 14, 2009
  1. ok i got a wd 1tb sata drive. i want to put it in an enclosure and connect it to my router via RJ-45 so i can put my familys movies on there as well as do regular back ups on all 6 of our computers... I cant seem to find a good enclosure to put my drive in. Secondly anyone have any suggestions for a good imaging software?

    Thanks in advance, Matt

    This will create the equivalent of an NAS device. Perhaps you can google for SATA NAS ENCLOSURE??

    looks good to me -- you will need a driver for the new USB device :)
