I don't get it. "Keep your old tiny-by-todays-size drive, and all the wasted space the OS uses on it, in this external enclosure... that you're probably never going to use, are you?"

Whatever happened to backing up your documents, wiping the drive 35 times, then selling it to someone at a cheap price?
