    Hey guys,

    I have a question.

    I have multiple 2.5 hard drives.
    That I have used for my MacBook.

    And I don't know what I can do with them. Is there a cheap Nas multi bay enclosure that I can put the 2.5 inch drives in and use them as a massive external storage?

    The only thing I can think of is a drobo
    But I'm not sure if they use 2.5 drives.

    Any help would be very helpful.

    The Drobo Mini takes up to 4 2.5 drives and is portable. It's a little more expensive at $600 just for the unit, but I've heard that the reliability and ease of use is worth the price point. I'm sure there are other cheaper options out there, but I'm not sure if they're hot-swappable like the Drobo, meaning you can easily add or remove drives with little hassle.
