My LaCie Mini has apparently died, just out of warranty naturally, and I need to get a new bootable external drive.

I really liked the LaCie Mini fitting under my Mac Mini. I'm thinking about the Newer Tech v3 but am wondering if I would be better off just getting a stand alone external drive. Space is not really an issue but I do like the look of external drive stacked under my Mini.

The external will be used to keep a bootable clone as backup. Any thoughts, advice and recommendations appreciated.

Can you open the one that died and replace the hard drive? Then just make it bootable.

Is it difficult to install a new hard drive once the case is open?

How do I make it bootable?

Thanks

Its typically easy to install a Disc.
into an enclosure.
You would make it Bootable by
using the appropriate Cloning App.
The HD enclosure MUST support
the boot feature also.
If the enclosure spec's don't
divulge if its bootable.
Ask us, we'll figure it out.
Enclosures that have Firewire
usually can be made to boot from
your cloned OS. USUALLY.

Luckily for me LaCie was generous enough to offer me a new external HD although this new one won't stack under my Mini I still give LaCie credit for giving me a new one even though my old LaCie was a few days out of warranty.
