I have a Dell 8400 with a 160 GB SATA HD. I have bought a SATA drive enclosure and another 160 GB SATA drive. I bought an external SATA connector so that I can connect the enclosure directly to the Mother board. I plan to Ghost an image of my C drive to the new drive. The enclosure has an on-off switch so after Ghosting I plan to shut it off. It will be a backup in case my C drive dies. I know I will probably never need it,I just wanted to do it. Do you forsee any problem?

No, do not see any problem with your plan.

Have you considered getting a 3rd drive, and then puting the BU on the shelf and taking advantage of the external enclosure to provide additional file storage ONLINE. Drives are cheap!
