Raspberry Pi NAS, what should I buy to connect the hard drive? Answered
So my friend's family's desktop died in July and they got rid of it and kept the hard drive. Recently, they sent it to me to get the files off of it. It was pretty straight forward, the hard drive had a bad sector and I had the thing up and fully operational within about 15 minutes. Since they got rid of the desktop, they all got laptops. I'm going to transfer the files over to their individual laptops, then format the hard drive, and set up a Raspberry Pi based NAS at their house. At this point, I'm not sure what I should buy to connect the hard drive. It doesn't need to be fast, just for files and sharing between the laptops. I'm going for minimum price, and I'm going to be using a Model A Raspberry Pi when they are released in the US. This will then be running owncloud. Any suggestions for connecting the hard drive would be great. I forgot to mention this, but the hard drive is a 320 gig SATA hard drive.
