I'm thinking of putting a second 500GB SATA disk for backup
on my (very cheap) Dell PowerEdge T105,
which currently has one 250GB SATA disk.
I'm running CentOS-5.2 on this machine, with BackupPC,
so my question is not entirely OT.
In any case, I looked inside the machine for the first time today,
and I see that the SATA data cable has a connector for a second disk;
but it seems I need another power cable to the PSU.
I googled for "SATA power cable" and there seem many variants.
I wondered if one of you gurus knew where I could get the Dell version?
Also, I wondered if there could be any problem
with just sticking in a second SATA disk?
Any and all advice gratefully received.
