comment How can I connect a SAS drive to USB?
@LucasKauffman - okay, so imagine I have an SAS disk in my hand. What IS the cheapest way of reading it?

revised How can I connect a SAS drive to USB?
Clarified that the machine is backed up, and that I need to grab a journal file on an SAS disk to bring a restored backup up-to-speed

@ErikA - just to answer your 'asides', I think these are dealt-with thanks to the periodic off-site backups. The specific scenario I am trying to cover is when the SAS disc is fine but the Dell T710 (for whatever reason) will not read it. (Maybe the T710 motherboard is broken; maybe Windows won't boot). I need a way of reading an SAS disc that does not depend on the only SAS-capable machine I have to hand.

@ErikA - thanks for your input. The data is backed up nightly and off-site (although admittedly not mirrored). If the Dell T710 dies some hours after the backup, I need to patch the live journal file from the dead T710 onto one of the backups. But how do I read the SAS disc containing the journal?

@pauska - the SATA adapter has a 2amp power injector.
