Making my own External drive - Part 1

As I've mentioned in my earlier posts, my laptop has an eSata port but nobody sells eSATA external hard drives in Pakistan. So, I opted for making my own hard drive.
The plan is to buy an enclosure which supports eSATA, and then install a SATA hard drive inside it. This would create a virtual external drive which I can use for backup and other things.
The eSATA to eSATA cable I ordered arrived today, fits perfectly into my laptop so no issues with the combo port.
The enclosure will arrive tomorrow inshAllah so I'll try to keep my blog updated on that.
Thats all the news I have right now :D
