I’m looking for a case for a desktop computer. Or for something to insert into a case.
No restrictions/requirements yet (so format/size/slots don‘t matter), except for this:
- I want to use two 3.5-inch HDDs (or SSDs).
- I want to be able to decide which drive to power up.
The idea is that it must be physically impossible for the operating system on drive 1 to access drive 2, and vice versa.
I don’t want to use an external drive, to swap the drives, or to have to (dis)connect cables.
Suitable solutions could be to have two buttons to boot the computer, a single toggle switch for the drives, or an on/off switch per drive.
A swapping mechanism (like many NAS cases offer) might work too, I guess (so I would physically disconnect the drive with a lever, but keep it in the slot, where it sticks out a few centimeters). But only if this doesn’t wear out the connection over time too much, as I’ll switch between the two drives daily.
