I read in one site that it enables to connect the drive with out needing to turn off the computer but there was no other explanation.
This does not make too much sense to me like how is it connected to the computer? when can u connect it through a sata connection. If you are using esata you need to connect an external power source. So this way what use is there for the 3.3V connection?
I have noted that you cannot connect esata on xp after you boot because it does not recognize it. On win7 does it connect automatic? I have not tried it yet can someone share there knowledge with me?
