Will doing this corrupt the data on the drives?
With the drives set to AHCI, will I be able to plug them into my son's computer Sata 1 port, which is set to IDE. This would be my external eSata drive that is used for file storage only.
Your expertise is much apprechiated with this problem.
I have recently done this and its not that difficult and works fine.
It will depend on your motherboard if you'll need AHCI for eSata or not... I don't.
