    Hi,

    Is it possible to connect SATA disk to my old PATA disk & clone it so that i can upgrade to SATA easily & dump my PATA disks.

    And also, is external USB casing available for SATA disks so that it can be used for backups too?

    Regards, Rohit

    Sure

    Sure you can do that. And dump the dumb PATAs quick. The performance gain is substantial. Not sure about the external USB thingy. But your drive is best inside the cabinet.
