    What do you have in your spare 3.5" drive bays?

    Well, as above! My Shuttle SN25P has a spare 3.5" external slot after the HDDs are put in the top bays, so what to put in it!

    And before anybody says a Floppy Drive - DON'T!!!!!

    There is a cover over it so can't be anything with sticking out parts very far.

    What about something like Belkin's USB2 4-port drive bay hub? 4 extra USB2 ports and it doesn't even project back so far as a floppy.

    Well obviously the put nothing in it option is the cheapest and easiest But it is sitting there asking to have something put in, even if it's a few USB ports that may not even be used! I have my Printer and USB HDD on a wired connection to my Wireless Router so there aren't many ports left that I need and the system already has 6 so it seems pretty pointless.

    Anything that might be different (fun?) ..........
