11 Mounted inside the USB enclosure is a HD. I'll use old HD for this
12 purpose. Frequently I work on at least 2 PCs running different Linux
13 OS. With such a device, USB enclosure, it'll ease my work on
14 consolidating the working data on 2 PCs. Otherwise I have to use a
15 pendrive for tranporting working data between 2 PCs. OR compressing
16 them as tarball and send the latter as attachment to an email.
