need hotswappable enclosure that formats drives
Sep 24, 2010

Hello all just hoping that I can get something very simple/cheap on the european side of the atlantic that will act as a convenient (no screws etc easy swap drive) enclosure that is also capable of formatting a new drive. I have a g5 but its not straight forward to swap out drives for just formatting. I have tried both a 'toaster drive" and an ice box hdd enclosure, but both don't allow formatting of previously unformatted drives (although the sales assistant begged to differ twice).
