Have an old internal hard drive sitting around in a box because you upgraded your laptop or PC to something else? Still want to use it? Grab this ORICO enclosure and your internal drive you aren't using becomes a portable external drive you can carry with you everywhere. Since the enclosure includes a USB-C port you'll even be able to plug it into newer machines with all the rapid data transfer rates that USB 3.1 provides. At the very least, you can use the drive as a serviceable backup.

This is a really simple device. You don't need any tools or screws or bits to install your old hard drive. It works with 2.5-inch SATA hard drives or SSDs in 7mm or 9.5mm sizes. When it comes to SSDs, it would actually be cheaper to buy an internal SSD like the WD Blue 1TB (opens in new tab) and one of these 2.5-inch enclosures than it would to buy a portable SSD like the Samsung T5 (opens in new tab) so it's worth thinking about even if you don't have spare internal drives lying around already. The plug-and-play operation means there are no drivers or messy software downloads either. Plus, ORICO backs it up with an 18-month warranty.
