ATA drives for storage

  • Posted: 29 March 2009 09:45 PM

    hi, I use ATA drives for storage of my images but they only come in anti static bags. I need to come up with a safe, correct way of storing them that is more protective and they can go into cabinet and stack and be labeled.

    I was thinking of using cardboard mailers that have antistatic foam inside to protect them.

    its hard to find any cases made for ATA drives besides enclosures…don’t need enclosure, I use a trayless double drive system to access images once on the ATA drive.

    Any suggestions, things to be careful of for long term storage etc is greatly welcomed.

    or if anyone knows a not too expensive solution, much welcomed.

    thanks!
