    Default Internal to External

    I have a new internal Seagate 640gb Sata 11 harddrive that I would like to use for backup by putting into an external case and connecting through USB to my PC which has ATA 100 Hard Drive.
    Will this work and is there a special case that would be required?
    Thanks for any advise

    Yes you can do that no worries.
    Just make sure that the external USB housing you purchase is for SATA drives and NOT IDE.

    Also check it supports drives of that capacity
