I have windows installed on a separate drive, but I have a few other drives for backup and storage. I have two large drives that I use to mirror one another with all my family pictures and home video. I also have a couple of off-site backup drives incase of home fires or such. One day I hope to be able to afford ultimate cloud storage but for now I just use physical drives. Point is I don't see a need to mirror drives any longer. I can use just one large drive on my main PC and keep it backed up regularly. My question: I want to pull one of the internal sata 2 drives I'm currently using to mirror, and store at another location. I have it formatted as a "simple" drive, I think... Is it something I can just plug into another computer and retrieve the data like I can an external hhd, or is it digitally married or something to the computer I originally formatted it with? I use a couple of external hhds that I just plug and copy. I need more drives I can use in that way and currently I just happen to have several 1 terabyte internal drives on hand so no need to go out and buy external drives if I can get an internal drive to work in the same way as my external drives.. Thanks..
