I have just watched Don’s video on how to install onCloud on a Raspberry pi and I want to try it myself.
To connect the SATA HDD or SSD to the Pi I need a USB to SATA cable converter, correct? Do I need to get the one that comes with a power supply or Not?
Would the onCloud and the SATA connection to USB will work on RPi 2 as well? I have several sitting on the shelf and I was wondering to make them a cloud servers with a small hard drive.
I would be happy if you could recommend a cable that I will use for that project and also a disk capacity that I will be able to use with both my Pi’s 3B and 2B.
I want to try the DietPi OnCloud and make a server of my own - apart from the one I would like to do with the KiMax BS-U35WF case.
I am also wondering… can I use a USB to SATA cable and connect a drive to the RPI using it to format the disk that I will finally install into the KiMax Wifi?
Is there a big difference between OnCloud and NextCloud?
Please if any of you can recommend me getting:
- SATA Drive for RPI 3 and RPI2
- USB to SATA Converter that will work on RPI for mounting the SATA drive.
Over Ali Express that I will be able to get them from there - I am not located in the US so Amazon is not my way of buying Stuff on the net.
One last reminder: Do I need the power supply for the USB to SATA cable or not?
