Can I make a laptop ( or any computer, really) hard drive out of several linked thumb drives?
I saw this in Make a while ago, I believe it was in the steampunk issue. It was a bunch of thumb drives linked by a usb hub into one, and then packed into a traditional hard drive case to make one big usb thumb drive that looked like a traditional hard drive. I was wondering if this was possible to do seriously, as the internal hard drive of a computer or laptop, because it is rugged and resistent to shock, etc. ( perfect for a laptop). I would get several large- capacity ( 16-32 GB and larger) thumb drives and link them together. My main problem is how to connect this to a traditional hard drive cable. Answers are appreciated. Thanks!
