    I have the following laying around my room:

    a 10 GB IDE HD
    a 60 GB IDE HD
    a 20 GB IDE HD
    a 25 GB IDE HD that I'm not sure works.

    I have a P4 'server' box with a total of 180 GB o' space, so it's designed to hold all my junk.

    My laptop is a dual 60 GB monster, so I'm not fearing space on my laptop.

    I bought an Adaptec HD Enclosure for some side work (extract data from a 'client' computer and burn it to a DVD+R for backup), so I want to use it at some point. :hsd:

    I figure I can use the 60 GB HD in the enclosure as needed to make bi-weekly/monthly backups of my laptop or Ghost images of my 180 GB 'server' box. :x:

    Don't wanna trash these drives, but I can't think of what to use them for.

    I don't have any computer boxes laying around, just these HD's that I've collected.

    I was thinking of using each drive as a backup of different things (music, XXX, etc).
