I am trying to locate or possibly inquire into whether there is even such thing as some kind of carrying case that can hold multiple 1TB, 2TB Seagate Expansion external hard drives. Something tantamount to the Case Logic's version of DVD/CD holder/storage case but for multiple portable hard drives. Does something like that even exist? Very interested in tracking one down cause I'm looking at consistently purchasing 2TB Seagate Expansion external hard drives ever-so-often and I need something to store them in that will keep them clean and operable. Thanks for your assistance in this matter.
Attached is a picture (on the left) shows what might be plausible for sleaves if I were to manufacture one myself, or (on the right) what the storage material would look like (PDA holder in Laptop case with velcro flip-down 4xSD card slots to hold SD cards). The way that it holds onto the drive is on the sides there is elastic bands that allow for stretching yet holding in place while in the front is the velcro'd flip-down section for SD cards. Very ingenius!
What would make this design even more unique and interesting is to employ a built-in multiple-port USB 2.0 hub inside the case where you can connect the cables to the hard drives while in the sleeves and just hook one USB 2.0 cable to any computer and suddenly you have your network HUB of 70+ 2TB Hard drives or whatnot. Perhaps instead of stacking the layout of pages with slots might look something like
so that each drive lays between the ones on the other page and only has the width of one drive. The only complication might be if you have drives of different heights/widths/lengths.
Well, that's my idea of what would be the perfect portable/storage carrying case for Seagate expansion portable hard drives. I hope someone finds this and markets the heck out of it so I can finally go out and buy one.
thank you for taking the time to read this. :3
