Because it would duplicate all the existing categories and mean the same thing, and you can only have ten lines.

I can't follow you. Which option shall I pick for a harddisk?

I use a QUBIDE interface with a short cable to an SD adapter board mounted in an old MD case - wasn't sure what class that was in the survey?

Does not belong into this survey. This is ONLY for people who use a QL in a case other than a QL.

Pedant! :P

Choose the option that shows the volume of the device. The volume of the device is what I am looking for, not the content of that volume. ;)

It's a BBQL, so this survey isn't relevant to you.

But you have given me an idea!

Haha, sorry I didn't get that you were only looking for mechanical dimensions. It would be a 5.25" drive. But forget about me, I use it seldeom.

You, Sir, are an outlier!

Well, that was actually informative. People really like their clunky old 3.5" drives.

I now know what I need to make provision for. Thank you. :D

Hi Dave,

Sorry to be different, but I am migrating away from hard drives from my systems. All except a 8Tb NAS.


Regards,

Derek
