idea Easy 2TiB hard drives

Post by Helladamnleet » Mon Apr 01, 2019 7:43 pm

Find a Dish Hopper. They have 2TiB hard drives in them. Often times they are put in shipping boxes outside houses, so it's not like it's hard to find a few. My motherboard has, for example, 6 SATA ports, so if I I could, in theory, have 12TiB of space for free with a little daytime scouting.

I used to do this all the time, going on with bikes collecting those black boxes next to the road. Or simply snatch them at the e-junk recycle center. Where you can also find nice other goodies, like full-blown PCs and even servers if lucky.

Keeping a watch out near high-schools/colleges at the end of trimesters is also a good idea, if you know where to look.
Dumpster diving is bottom on the list, but go in any IT company's dumpster and you'll find some junk you could potentially use. Although HDDs are rare unless they are incompetent .

I bet the DirecTV boxes are decent for this kinda thing too. In fact, thinking about it, I think I pulled my last laptop hard drive out of a DirecTV DVR I had laying around.


That's a good tip too. Dish and DirecTV send you boxes to just have FedX come pick up, so you can often find them as returned equipment.
