You might be able to take the hard drives out of them and put them in one. Do some sort of JBOD raid.


Hope this helps thumbup.gif

CaveDweller2 has the best possible solution.  Combine the drives into one machine and create some sort of array.  Another option might be a NAS (Network Attached Storage) box.

 

When creating an array some thought needs to be put into backups and what happens if a drive dies.  In a JBOD or RAID0 solution if one disk dies you lose all of your data.
