So before I go and spend my hard earned cash on ebay. Does anyone have an old computer (or motherboard and processor combo) that they don’t want? The only catch is that is needs to be able to read a 1Tb SATA disk. Speed is not important though.

If anyone actually wants an old computer that cannot read a 1Tb SATA disk then I have two old and slow machines going spare? Nope thought not.

In other news the aircon is broken at work again.

the one I was talking to you about is this:

Not sure about HDD capacity though - welcome if it's any use

Yes that would be excellent and will read a 1Tb SATA disk with no problems. It was only the early SATA mobos that would not read 1Tb. Are you sure you don't need it?

Nods, is overkill for what I had in mind. (testing salvaged HDDs). Could use one of the other SATA machines though.

Does that mean you are also looking for a low spec SATA machine or that you already have one that will do? Anyway, thanks so much for this. Are you in London anytime soon so I can pick it up from you?

I have an old machine you could have (in fact I have two), but I have no idea if it could do what you're asking... I also have no idea what to do with them!

Well it kind of depends on how old they are? When did you buy them? I could have a look at them at some point if you like? Do you have any data on them you want to get rid of?
