I have my iTunes database as identical instances in PA and VA. A friend suggested it might be easier to put it on a large, portable external
drive and cart it back and forth, using the PA and VA dbs for occasional backup instead of trying to keep them both synced.
The more I thought about it the more sense it made. However, every
drive I looked at has an extra power supply I would also have to take
with me, either that or have multiple supplies. I know some smaller
drives are powered off the USB bus but I don't know of any this large.
Are there any?
You could probably build one yourself using a bare drive and an
external USB enclosure. You may also need a "Y-cable" to use two USB
ports to get enough power.
Sizes are increasing all the time (and decreasing in price or the same
price for bigger capacity). Such a drive will be expensive.
