Hi all,

Inspired by a post on a forensics forum on google custom searches, I thought about donor drives and how much easier it would be if there was a single search engine that would search a number of suppliers sites for donors... So I set one up, not sure if this has been done on the forum before (couldn't see anything from a quick search) but thought I would post anyway...

Here is the URL: http://www.google.com/cse/home?cx=01186 ... vt8_adlkk4

Here are the suppliers currently in the list:

http://www.donordrives.com
http://www.hdd-parts.com/
http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Darius-HDD-solutions
datadonor.net
laptopdrivestore.com
http://hddparts.blogspot.com/
ultratecdirect.com
hdd-donor.com
accesscomputerparts.net
socalresellers.com

If you are a supplier and wish to be included on the list, or you are a DR company and can recommend any other sites then I will get them added.

Hope this can help someone else out there..

C

http://www.firmwarefinder.com same as Ultratecdirect but more focused towards firmware revisions, when it's working it's quite good!

Haven't updated the search engine for quite a while but after looking at the web stats I see the search is still widely used, on average 3 times a day which is surprising for something I setup on a whim, if any suppliers would like to added please send me a link to your stock pages.

Sometimes, I use it too.
If you get it with even more links, more people will use it, I think.
