How to connect drives to a PC and what to do if there is not enough power or SATA ports

Before taking out the disks, you must count the number of drives that make up the array and check whether there are enough SATA ports on the PC motherboard to which they will be connected in the future and whether there is enough power and power outputs.

The SATA port looks like this.

And this is what the power connector looks like.

Their number is limited by the characteristics of the motherboard, as well as the power supply.

What to do if there are not enough SATA ports on the motherboard

In the event that there are more media than ports, you can temporarily disable the drive or other device that is not needed during the recovery process. If SATA is still not enough, you can use an expander.

There are a large number of models of such devices, their main difference is the number of additional ports. To connect the expander, install it in the PCIe slot of the PC motherboard.

Insufficient nutrition

In the case of missing power connectors, there are also various adapters and splitters. For example, here is a splitter that allows you to get 4 or 5 – SATA from one MOLEX connector. One carrier consumes a small amount of energy (in full load mode, no more than 20W, depending on the volume of the drive), so a conventional 400-500 Watt unit should be enough to power about 10 carriers.

If you have another PC, you can power some of the disks from it, this method is suitable, for example, if there are no additional splitters available, or if the power of the power supply of one computer is not enough. The media is connected to the motherboard of the first PC, and power is supplied to them from the second.

To proceed to the next step, you need to make sure everything is connected correctly. To do this, start the PC, check if it sees all the drives connected to it. Open Disk Management (right-click on the Start menu – Disk Management). When properly connected, all devices should be displayed in this window.
