  • 1 External HDD for 2 PC's?

    I just recently got a 1TB external hard drive and would like to set it up so that 2 PC's can access data and write data to it. How would I go about setting something like this up? Both PC's are connected to a network, but I don't want this particular HD to be put on the network. I just want to hardwire the 2 PC's to the HD so that only the 2 PC's will see the drive. Thanks...

    I'm not aware of any solution that will do this other than some sort of network attached storage device. Numerous companies make them but they all plug into your network and are shared between the computers that you attach to them rather than being directly-attached.

      Only thing you could do is put it on one of the PCs share it with that other you are wanting to use it with and then set network permissions between the 2. Takes some time to get setup but would work like you want.
      that sounds like a good idea trooper.

        Something like this may work for you if it is USB:

        I didn't research if it will work with Hard Drives.
