    We came across a really cheap emachines computer with a huge hard drive so we are going to use it as a backup for my iMac.

    Is it possible to connect the two via a USB cable (only kind of jack on the emachines) and have it appear and function as a hard drive on my iMac?

    Thanks a ton!

    Is the possibility of setting up a local network out of the question?

    If not you can share a directory on the eMachine and then on your iMac just map the drive.

    It would probably be easier and faster just to get an enclosure for the drive.
