I am looking for a small drive of some sort for a private server hosted using a desktop computer. The server will be used as a private proxy. I only need around 25-50 GB, but everything I find is 500+ GB Hard Drives. Is there a fast and small internal drive, maybe flash memory? It would be best to spend less than $20.

This is the smallest drive I could find on Newegg, but it is still way too large and it 3 times the price I am looking for.

You can find HDD's under $20 on newegg.com :


Have you tried eBay?

I bought a 2GB SSD for about $7 so I could build a pfSense router. It was perfect for what I needed. I also bought a 60GB HP SSD for $15. There are plenty of drives (even new ones) for under $20. It will just take some hunting.

  • I cannot buy the parts right now, and I was looking more off of eBay and on actual store sites for now, but here in a few months when I am back in the states I'll look on eBay if I cannot find anything else.
